    Default Reading Catholic Baptism 2.0

    These Roman Catholic baptisms have me coming back to this area constantly!

    Just wondering if anyone could translate the small text at the bottom of this baptism?
    Reading older handwriting isn't exactly my strong point!

    Thank you!

    You often see added notes like this in RC baptism registers. It says that Albert was joined in matrimony to Ethel Blakeway some date in August 1923...can't enlarge the writing so can't see the rest.

    I think I can make out "in ecclesia catolica(?) apud Dudley 25/8/23" - in the Catholic Church in Dudley 25/8/23"

    The marriage appears on the West Midlands BMD site http://www.westmidlandsbmd.org.uk but with the surname spelled WILCOX. It's listed as being a Register Office ceremony, but this also includes marriages in those non-Church of England churches which didn't have their own registers, so the registrar had to attend instead.
