Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Ketley, Shropshire.
« on: Friday 20 January 17 15:36 GMT (UK) »
I'm trying to identify the vicar of the Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Ketley, Shropshire in 1916.

Can anyone help please?

Many thanks.

CJ.

The reason I'm asking is because I'm trying to decipher the parish record for the marriage of Harry Mason to Sarah Anne Elizabeth Healey on 5th August 1916.

I can make out three of the four witnesses, Thomas Healey, Georgina Eleanor Harris Healey and Anne Stanworth Healey. I can't make out the fourth witness, William Henry ?????? and I can't read the vicar's name (it looks like T. Lawrie ????????).

May I suggest that you post the image of the marriage cert on -

Where hopefully someone will be able to decipher the names.
