Hi am trying to find a marriage for a Miss Marjorie Miles to a Mr Bennett. Marjorie was born in 1915 in South Africa or Namibia. The only other information I have is Marjorie was buried with her father in Namibia, OTJOZONDJUPA region, Okahandja, Osana farm cemetery in 1990 or 1998. 

Any help would be appreciated

Kind regards
Nattai

Hi Derek

Thank you so much for the information, but it was her marriage I was after however you have shown on the estate information a Peter Bennett.

I was unaware my Marjorie had a middle name. Bit I have since found out my Marjorie died on the 28 July 1998. do you know if the Marjorie Louise Bennett information died on that date ?

Kind regards
Tim

I am sure you will have spotted Marjorie's plaque at the foot of her father's headstone

That looks like a 1971 reference to me.  Wrong lady?

Hi Shaunj

Yes I did see Marjorie's small headstone with her father but the death date is hard to read I am sure it is  July 1998.

Kind regards

Nattai,

I'm giving you the link to that 1971 estate in the hope that others will NOT continue to suggest this (incorrect) person.
