Are you able to go around the corner to the Clwyd FH Research Centre, WR, and have a wee look in the booklets ?

Unfortunately the Marriages for Holywell St James are only covered in the booklets up to 1841.

Thanks all for your help and fast responses. I am going to take WRJ advice and use St James, it also makes sense with where they lived. I was surprised that FamilySearch dont list the specific churches either for Holywell as they do usually have the churches specified on the films/reference materials.

I also learned from you that the issue with mis-classification of parishes on the records on FindMy Past extends beyond Anglesey where it is one hot mess! and I thought Anglesey was the only county to have this problem. I am providing emails to the FindMyPast support team every time I come across an example and have been doing this for some weeks, still awaiting the corrections though, will chase them up once again today to see when we can expect the corrections.

Best Regards
Gill

Just to clarify what WR  wrote ~ Although the Clwyd booklets for Holywell stop at 1841, the Bagillt ones go to 1911 so could be checked for inclusion or omission.

Gill - I would always recommend obtaining the marriage certificate in these cases or, if you don't wish to purchase,  phoning up the records office - they are usually very helpful and you could mntion the confusion with available sources.

Thanks Gadget. I do have the marriage certificate but all it says is "The Parish Church" "Holywell".

Then that will be St James's. Looks as if it might well have been mis-allocated as we suspected  :-\
