Trying to locate an elusive marriage!
« on: Wednesday 21 February 18 15:26 GMT (UK) »
Hi all,

I have located a family that I have been a long time looking for. In the 1911 census they are living at 240 Sellincourt Road in Tooting as follows:

William Stephens  43 - Hairdresser and Painter born in Peckham
Jane Stephens  42 born in Birkenhead
Rosebell Stephens  13
Dora Stephens  11
Gertrude Stephens  9
Fred Stephens  8
Edward Stephens  6
Elise Stephens  3

Listed marriage duration as 15yrs so married around 1896.

I located the same family in the 1901 census at 15 Lower Marsh in Lambeth where it states that Jane was born in Liverpool

William Stephens  30 - Hairdresser
Jane Stephens  28
Rose Stephens  2

All children have Mothers Maiden name of Laycock. I know that there may be an Irish connection and Jane may not have been from Liverpool but am struggling to find the marriage.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Fantastic thank you. Not sure what I was doing wrong as looks like all names are correct. Will I need to purchase a certificate or is the information on the marriage available online?

Thank you so much.
