Hi Im trying to find a marriage for CLARA CHEESMAN born 1st July 1886 Hackney. Her father was GEORGE JOHN CHEESMAN. All I have is her husbands surname which is EDWARDS. Ive tried everthing I can think of to find the marriage but with no luck.
Any help would be appreciated.:hammer:

The birth certificate of one of their children will give you the father's full name.

I was working on the same couple as notanotherminer, and found a death for Ernest Clark 1913, also a marriage for a Clara Clark to Ernest Edwards.
Death West Ham, Ernest Clark, Jan-Mar 1913. 4a/354, age 30.
Marriage West Ham, Clara Clark to Ernest Edwards, Apr-Jun 1918.

Just as an aside, without wishing to derail the thread ...
(although normally there would be 2 entries in the GRO index, one for each previous name)
I don't think so. Only if for some special reason both names were given in the marriage register (e.g. in the case of a divorcee).
Local BMD indexes are another matter. For second marriages they do often give a maiden name, normally derived from the father's name as stated in the register.

I didnt know at the time if Clara had children.

I got the name EDWARDS from a Grave Registration form that Clara had signed. She was signing over a family grave to my grandfather.

it would explain why she couldn't find the marriage
It's what happens when people don't work systematically and try and jump over essential steps in the process.
