The Common Room / Re: AT WHAT TIME IS A MARRIAGE LEGAL
« on: Yesterday at 12:44 »
My gut feeling would be that it would be legal, according to UK law, when the register was signed and witnessed.  Canonical law would make it legal when they were pronounce man and wife.

I think this is one for Stan  :)

Ditto...It saves us restorers a lot of work when restoring photos if we don't have the dust spots and fibres to deal with.

Agree wholeheartedly. Removing dust and smears from a scan are the most tedious and unnecessary parts of restoration.

Seems like it's definitely an Edge problem.  I've never used it - stick with Firefox and Chrome on PCs and Firefox and Safari on Macs.

The signature on Christina's death cert is clearer it could well be  J Mc Stuart.

What was his wife's surname?

Now thinking that the Stuart link could be via Christina's mother - maiden name was Ann Hossack.

The same person (Stuart) was the informant on Christina Diamond ms Watson's death cert - he is described as Brother in Law so assume he might be  the brother/step of Sgt Diamond.
