Can you please put a snip on here?  Everyone doesn't have a Dropbox account.  It needs a log-in to look at your link.

thanks

It looks as if someone has scored out Morris in blue and replaced it with Colman in blue. Then a later hand has changed it back in red to Morris.

Lily married my grandad, he assumed the identity of Ronald Colman, his real surname was Coffman. They had 2 children, I have found one son called Robert. I can’t seem to make out the letters in the brackets by the numbers. The date 21.12.46 is when they “married” the other date in red I’m not sure what the significance is of that (looks like 28 10 47 - 28th October 1947 maybe?) if anyone is able to make out the word or words between (Ref Big: and the numbers 89516 I would be most grateful. I can only imagine it is something to do with his bigamy conviction, I’m not sure when he was convicted of it but do know that he was

I see:
 
(Ref Big: Inge/es/89516)

and Inge/es/89516 would be the case file for the Bigamy investigation dated 28. 10. 47.
