Hi
Is there anyone who live near the Gwent Archives that could do a look-up for a marriage?  As per FreeBMD: William Gerrish and Ann Reed married in June Qtr 1902; I am seeking any details of the bridegroom, particlarly his father's name.  Appreciate any help given.
Regards, Roy

Hi Rowley
Its good of you to post the census details of a William Gerrish but what I am really after are details of the William Gerrish who married a Ann Reed in Bedwellty in 1902.  Ann Reed had been widowed in 1900, re-married in 1902, and by the 1911 census she was widowed for a second time.  I am trying to identify her second husband William Gerrish but don't know anything about him which is why I was hoping if someone either living near to or visiting the archives would do a log-up in the parish records.
Thanks again, Roy

Thanks Gerry
I had the marriage details off FreeBmd and assumed Bedwellty meant at St. Sannan's Church ???

Hi Osprey
Thanks for the list; On reading Bedwellty I naturally assumed it to be St Sannan's Church because its the neighbouring church and many folk from Brithdir did actually have their marriage ceremony there.  Also there are a number of gravestones of people from the village who were buried there.  I was there recently for the funeral of an uncle; its a beautiful church.  Looking at the list Rhymney Church is a possibility.
