Marriage look up for Waylands Norfolk
« on: Thursday 25 August 16 13:09 BST (UK) »
Can anyone help me please by looking up the parish register of the marriage between JOHN DAWSON and VERA SELLORS (Sellore in Ancestry transcript) It took place in the last quarter of 1939 at Waylands, Norfolk. They were both born in Ashton under Lyne Lancs.
The problem I have is that there are a number of John Dawsons all born between 1912 and 1915 and I need to know who his father was to find the correct one.  I believe it could be a Halliwell Dawson but without confirmation cannot substantiate it.  I have also tried to find a church in Waylands and none are listed.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Waylands registration district covers many parishes

ADDED I think the transcript on Ancestry that you can see is just the GRO index

FreeBMD give the bride's name as Sellors.

And, as rosie99 says, there are a lot of parishes in the Wayland Registration District.

Nothing is apparent from the parish registers for Norfolk.  Nor on Family Search who have the browsable records for Norfolk.

Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.

Thanks anyway.  It is just an odd offshoot which is why I am not purchasing marriage certificate.  Was hoping there might be a parish entry to clear the matter up.
