From FreeBMD:

John H POWELL m. Violet I OWEN Jun Q 1937.  (Birmingham 6d 1025)

The marriage cert would give Violet's (and Leah's) father's name.

Looking at your previous posts, Leah's maiden name appears to be BIGGS, not OWEN - or am I missing something?

If so, born about 1905

The only birth I can see with a middle name beginning with I is

Jul/Aug/Sep 1906
Glamorgan
Ref 11a. 901
Violet Irene Owen

She seems to be the daughter of David and Alice and has a brother Cifford.  Not looking like the right birth.


But just looked at your previous posts that Rambler referred to. I see Leah was born about 1880. Quite a gap if she sister to the Violet who died 1968 and was born 1905!
