The Sheffield marriage might be the Norman Southern registered in Ecclesall Bierlow in 1912 - mmn = Goodall.

For some reason, Norman appears to have been registered in Northwich RD in September quarter 1912 - mmn = Bond.

Apologies for this, BUT you do have to take on-line trees with a "pinch of salt", or very often a "cellar of  "  :) :)

According to the holdings at WYAS, the only church with records from 1500's is St Peter and they commence in 1572.

Yes, a practice of LDS to re-baptise the dead.   :-\

"In the practice of the LDS Church, a living person, acting as proxy, is baptized by immersion on behalf of a deceased person of the same sex. After giving a short prayer, which includes the name of the deceased individual, the proxy is immersed briefly in the water, then brought up again. Baptism for the dead is an ordinance of the church, performed only in temples, and is based on the belief that baptism is required for entry into the Kingdom of God.[2]"

Oh, thank goodness you have responded.  :D  I, for one, was getting a little worried for you.

PLEASE, please, just do what you WANT to do - NEVER take as "gospel" what others tell you to do.

Very, VERY relieved to see you back.   :D :D  :-*
