Katie Ada Wearham Married William S Smale 1911 in Lewisham
« on: Tuesday 28 November 17 22:15 GMT (UK) »
Please can anyone help?  I have the above marriage in the Lewisham district, Sept Q 1911.  Struggling to know which William Smale he is as there are a few.  He has the middle initial S so hoping someone know a way to find his middle name to narrow the field down.  I have found Katie's grave on one of the grave photo sites (in Sidcup) with one of their sons Frank George (they had twins born in 1914), the other twin was called William Gordon.  I cannot find any definite further records for William S or William Gordon, but on Frank's grave it, looks like it says "Beloved Uncle" and I have not found another child for them.

Thank you for reading

CJ

Have you got a rough date of birth for either Katie or William? If so, you might be able to find them in the 1939 register, which could help identify his birth.

Thank you both, yes that is definitely them.  I thought that it was Shelton as they were of a similar age.  But there were a few.  It's funny how you get a pull towards one more than others, some times it is right but sometimes not.  Thank you, just got to search for William Gordon now  ;D
