    Sorry about the typo - brain and fingers are often out of sync at my age!

    Thank you for the newspaper link. I have got page 4 of the relevant date/newspaper but it won't let me see page 3 without a subscription! Henrietta's father did come from Par though so this does look right.

    I'm wondering whether if it is possible to query the 1902 marriage with the Chertsey registration office/district - would a phone call and a pleading voice illicit a quick look up?!

    It's worth a try. You have the date and the names etc so ask. They can only say no.

    Are you definitely looking on FMP, and not the BNA? If so, that's rather weird.
    Try using the same filters of March 1903, West Briton and Cornwall Advertiser newspaper, and then trying in turn just the surnames of Haughton, Rooke, Symons, Fallon, Haly, as they are also in the BMD column. If none of them work then try Wilfred Lawson or Thomas Hugo, which are both names on the same page.

    I think that unfortunately that will likely be a 'no'. If you knew the church/chapel or the date then you might get a 'yes'. A quick check shows that they could possibly have to check about fifty churches/chapels over that three-month period. (Which is why I didn't suggest it in the first place.) However, they might have all the marriages typed into a database which which make searching for a surname much easier, so yes, it is worth a try.
    If they push you for a specific place you could try St Mary's, Walton on Thames, the parish George was living in in 1901.

    I was a fine one to talk about typos. Just re-read my first post and I managed to not only spell 'possibly' as poaaibly, but I also wrote 1892 instead of 1902. Managed to sprinkle some 'mod's fairy dust', so now you
    can't tell.
