I recently got birth, marriage and death certificate for my grandfather Sidney Cyril Martin he was born 27Th Oct 1913 he has no father listed his mother Betsy martin has no record of marriage and this backs up evidence by surname not changing from her parents John Martin and Elizabeth Martin (Helmsley) . Betsy died in 1918 and by history passed down Elizabeth and John brought him up. Sidney got married on 24Th December 1942. he has put fathers name down as John Martin(Deceased). Has any one come across a situation before where the incorrect name is put on father section of marriage certificate have double checked my research in case I incorrectly linked wrong family but everything fits.
