Corscombe 1914 Marriage of JOHN HENRY LEGG
« on: Saturday 14 April 18 14:03 BST (UK) »
Has anyone had or can have sight of the marriage certificate of JOHN HENRY LEGG's marriage to GLADYS MARY JONES at Corscombe Dorset on the 2 April 1914?  I want to resolve one of two candidates and the name of JOHN LEGG's father would do this for me.
Am grateful for any help.
