Marriage / death look up request Ashford/Redman
« on: Friday 03 March 17 20:05 GMT (UK) »
Hi all! I was wondering if you guys could help me with my grandparents wedding day and the day they died?

Gordon Frederick Ashford born 28th August and died in 2005. Not sure when though.

Joyce Lilian Redman born 21st March 1931 and died in1997. Again not sure when.

I believe they married in West Harptree in Oct/Nov/Dec 1950 but  it sure the EXACT date. Is there anyway I can see a copy of their wedding certificate or buy one? I can only find the transcript :(
Can you please help me find the exact date of their wedding?

Thank you so much ❤

Thank you!

They all say quarter or give estimates - is there anyway to find the EXACT dates? X

Only by buying the certificates! ;D
Unless you can find a Parish Register entry.

How do I go about finding the parish register entry?

I tried to buy the certificates in the gov website but they didn't have them past 1916

1. Find out which parish is applicable. (That's the difficult bit!)
2. Find out where the parish registers are held.
3. Search!

For certificates, use FreeBMD to get the required Year, Quarter, Registration District, Volume and Page No.
On the GRO page, click on "Place an Order" from the menu on the Right-hand side.
