A while ago I received an email from my cousin x1, attached was a marriage certificate. The content of the certificate was a complete surprise. It was my father's 1st marriage! I was not aware my father (William Hoare) had been previously married The marriage to Lilian Isabel Smith was in September 1925 (registered Harrow). I found her baptism record (1905) and the family in the 1911 census. I have found electoral roll records for my father in 1926 and 1927 and Lilian is not shown on either roll. As I don't have a copy of my parents marriage certificate, I don't know if Lilian divorced my father or if she died. I can find no record of her after the marriage to my father. Can anyone help, please?
