Dave THANK YOU SO MUCH for this  ;D
By using those free credits I have been able to find the marriage of an ancestor & the birth of his daughter.  It was a long shot (looking in Scotland) but paid off, I'm over the moon as I was able to identify his father & mother from the marriage details.
Once again, a very big thank you :-*

Glad some of you are getting use from this.

Jane, your result is brilliant. Would you not have tried a Scottish search otherwise?

If not, it makes we wonder whether this thread should be moved to the Common Room. Perhaps it might give others the idea to expand their searches and perhaps come up trumps as you have.

I wonder just how many folk, not generally researching Scotland, are aware of SP.

I've renamed the thread, just in case not everyone recognises the abbreviation for ScotlandsPeople (SP) and also asked the Mods to move to Common Room if appropriate.

Dave, if I told you I had had this ancestors details since 1971 & had not been able to find his connection, I think you would be as excited as I am  :D
He first surfaced in 1955 when I personally remember my grandfather saying he had seen an interview on the TV with a William Bravery a Chelsea Pensioner.  Bravery was my grandfathers surname.  This incident was recalled in my grandfathers diaries (I have copies) he obviously went to meet him & recalls that, 'cousin Bill' had lost his wife, 'cousin Nellie' & daughter in a rocket attack during WWII.
I had found Nellie's death recorded in CWGC but could not find a marriage for them.  I got William's details from the Royal Hospital back in 1971 & found he had been in the Royal Scots Fusiliers.  Yesterday I went through the GRO indeces looking for the marriage without success so my thoughts turned to Scotland & I came on the Scottish page of Rootschat which is where I found your posting  :D I had done a free search on SP & found 3 births & 3 marriages in the name of Bravery but didn't want to fork-out the 6 pounds as it was such a long shot & I would be left with unused credits....bingo, along came Dave  ;)  I found the birth of the daughter & their marriage two years after the birth & what's more, Nellie was William's first cousin!  This might have been the reason why they went to Scotland ( a disapproving family)
Sorry for the long post but I'm so elated that I had to share my success which involved some very sneaky detective work on CWGC  ;D

As I've changed the heading of the thread, I thought it might be worth repeating the original post...........
