Charles appears with pob in different counties and with several variations of his name.
 
Scottish surnames starting with LA and not LAY... or LANE or LAIRD or LAM..

It's LAW.

I'll have to go back on and find the marriage.

Have I got the right marriage?

Wilson WEST married 1907 Abbotshall, Fife to Robert LAW

Death 1922 LAW Wilhelmina (WEST) Morningside, Midlothian Age 38
 
I have not been able to rule out Wilson WEST.

Still got one sister to find after 1901 - Margaret Shedden WEST.

Married 1906 Canongate to G ANGUS.


Death 1938 ANGUS Margaret Shedde (WEST) St Mary Dundee Age 58

I tried all combinations of Wilhelmina that I could think of and ended up with Wilson. The death fits.
 
So it is the wrong marriage and middle name Wilson is the one I found in the index.


So Wilhelmina married a LAW but not Robert in Fife in 1907.
