Can anyone make out what the maiden name on the old marriage certificate. Above looks like Ruth McOllie but not sure if this is correct and can't make out the name under this

It looks like Beattie formerly Gilhaspy. There is a death of a Ruth Beattie or Gillespy in 1934 in Dunfermline  that may be her.

Marriage certificate 1923

Can anyone identify the occupation of both my great great grandfathers?
Is Mary Kelly's maiden name Hotchkiss?
Any information on any of these people is much appreciated.

Hi Paul,
  John William Beattie was an Assurance Assistant Superintendent (deceased) and John Kelly was a van driver. And yes, I read Mary Kelly's maiden name as Hotchkiss.  Hope that helps!
