Are there any listings of UK divorces in the period 1950 to 1980 available?

Armed Forces / Royal Navy Baptism's
« on: Monday 14 December 20 03:48 GMT (UK)  »
A friend, the child of a Royal Navy officer was baptised on one of HM ships in 1948.
They are puzzled why the baptism certificate has their mothers maiden name on the certificate. This was their third child and they had been married for 7 years.
Is or was there a reason for the mothers maiden name being used?

Thanks for your reply Shaun.
I realise now that I should have posted WW2 with my query. Your link seems to be for WW1 only.

Gloucestershire / James WINTLE born Upton St Leonard c 1817
« on: Sunday 01 November 20 06:20 GMT (UK)  »
I am trying to fill in details for the early life of James WINTLE c 1817. I am hoping someone can help me for the period up to his marriage in 1850. The only fact I have in that period is a Law List entry for 1843, he was a Solicitor at Newnham on Severn.
Any detail would help

Thank you all for showing interest in my enquiry.
I have already tried the avenues suggested so far.
In 1895 before the changes made to the 1893 marriage register The first child of the marriage Carrie was registered by mother C (presumably Caroline) UDALE
Wivenhoe you will see Mckha has answered your query for me. Mckha  I have searched the 1891 census for Caroline as either an EMERY or a DAVIS again with out success.
Early days for my enquiry and I live in hope.
Thank you ALL!!

Worcestershire Completed Look up Requests / What happened to Caroline UDALE c 1872?
« on: Friday 02 October 20 06:30 BST (UK)  »
Caroline UDALE c 1872 and  husband Frederick c 1875 baptised their daughter Sarah Annie at KIngs Norton 22 January 1899 (Sarah Annie died that year). That is the last record I can find of them together.
Caroline and Frederick were married in 1893 at Wirksworth Derbyshire. Their marriage certificate was modified in 1897, she had been entered as Annie Yeomans Davis and had signed with that name. She became Caroline with father Joseph EMERY a Boot maker. This fits well with an 1881 record at Stourbridge. There is a marriage of a Caroline UDALE to a John DAVIS at Walsall in 1888.
Now Frederick UDALE can be fitted to to a Frederick UDOLLORESS shown at Cheltenham in the 1901 Census, born Montreal Canada ( In the 1911 census born Wirksworth). The name UDOLLORESS created by Frederick is unique. Frederick went on to marry a Keziah HIGGINS in 1902.

I have been unable to find any evidence of Caroline c 1872 after 1899. Was Frederick escaping from a marriage when he became UDOLLORESS?
Thoughts and advice would be very welcome.

I now have a poor quality Birth Registration Document for Thomas Devers Born at Glenmask.
The document came from a daughter of Thomas, as a relative could she apply fo a copy before a 100 years are up?
Does anyone know of any records linked to Glenmask?
