Thank you Dawn,
I would presume that Wilfred would be dead by now, and Miriam Nee Davies, died in 1990, I am the Glyn mentioned, in my enquiry.
Many thanks.

Hi Glyn

Your first step, if you haven't already, should be to purchase a copy of their marriage certificate from the General Register Office (www.gro.gov.uk) which will cost 9.25 and should give you their ages and the names of both fathers.

The registration details you need as well as their names are the date of registration, March quarter 1940 and the registration district and reference numbers of Wrexham, volume 11b and page 864.

This should take about a week to get to you. Very little information from the 1940's is available online because it is too recent.

Unfortunately any help we give you now is likely to be very wrong because of the surnames being so frequently occurring.

Think about getting the certificate and if you do, post again with some more details.

Hope this helps

Dawn

Hi Glyn

With regards to 'frequently occurring surnames', I've had a quick look at the death index from 1969-2005 and there are 38 entries for Wilfred Griffiths born 1915 +/- 5 years, 21 have a middle name, 17 don't. Of the 17, 5 were registered in Wales.

If he was born earlier than 1910 or died before 1969 when dates of birth were recorded on death certificates, there could be several more entries to consider.
