Link to British newspaper archive:
https://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/

Otherwise you need to do research into local newspapers to Newington in 1968 for Margaret to see what papers existed and what archives are held.
Possibly post on a local history website for help there - they know what is available.

Have you managed to do a search of local newspapers to see if there is a report of either of the parents' deaths?

Hi, Madrid1983,

What country did the marriage take place in, and where were the 2 sons that you know of born?

Thanks

Added: The marriage was in Irvine if anyone else was interested.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Re: entry on 1921 census

Hi, Bookbox

Yes, I assumed she should not have been entered as she would have been elsewhere.
What I am trying to work out is who she married, as I am trying to find her death.  She is in several trees on Ancestry, death either unknown or wrong (of the ones I have checked). This 1921 census gives me a new clue.

Hi, mckha,

I did see that but did not think it looked like Grady and could not see anything in 1939 - but have just realised I forgot to check for deaths.

Hi, Gadget,

I thought there was something between the Murrays, possibly starting with a G.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / entry on 1921 census

Kate Palmer was born in 1895 in Collingbourne Kingston, Wiltshire, illegitimate daughter of Emily Alice Palmer.  Emily subsequently married Mr Bowley and then moved in with Mr Morey, who was using the surname Murray.
Kate Murray shows as the daughter of Joshua and Emily Alice Murray at Marnhull, Sturminster Newton, in 1911.
In 1921 she shows as still living with them and married.  The entry is attached below.  She is crossed through, so presumably has been wrongly entered.
Do you think the married surname is shown, and if so, what is it?

Thank-you

Thank-you for the fabric result.  One lives and learns.

Thanks for the picture, very useful.

However, why is that a rep costume/coat as distinct from a normal sort?
