    Default Re mothers bate of birth

    Hi there i posted some info yesterday and it must be floating around the stratosphere so here it is again .
    My mother Phyllis fenwick (maiden name ).
    Name on wedding certificate to my dad phyllis may meek , to be johnstone .
    Wedding was 25 march 1965.
    Date of birth mother was 26 march 1916.
    My mother was devorced thats why there is a different surname and her previous marriage which was done in hammersmith .
    I have tryed to get info about thomas meek but records are closed , i dont need to go down that path as my dads siblings and my mothers family are what i need to find out about , what happened to them and so on .

    If you look at my message #7, you'll see that I told you where to find Andrew's age.

    Hi
    His service records says he was sent to England on the Warilda 4 October 1917 having been injured 15 Sept 1917. He was in hospital for 215 days with the injury to and amputation of the 1st phalanx of his big toe. I wonder if his first marriage was in England?

    Wikipedia says "HMAT Warilda (His Majesty's Australian Transport) was a 7713-ton vessel, built by William Beardmore and Company in Glasgow as the SS Warilda for the Adelaide Steamship Company.[1] She was designed for the East-West Australian coastal service, but following the start of the First World War, she was converted into a troopship and later, in 1916, she was converted into a hospital ship."

    When discharged his record says 'dispatched to Kinross 14 feb 1919' so more likely he married the first time in Scotland? So his first marriage after this date and before 1965. A rather long time period.

    Hi Chrissie b
    You are in luck - ancestry are giving free access to their military records.
    see this thread https://www.british-genealogy.com/th...ds-FREE-ACCESS
