Thank you all for your very helpful comments. Death cert is a must. Could find nothing in local papers unfortunately. Theirs is a very sad story - not surprised there was no obituary.

Would appreciate some help please. My great Aunt, Georgina Roberts (nee Goff) died 12th January 1913, aged 33, at Penmon. Is anybody able to supply me with a cause of death please? Many thanks. Her husband, Joseph Thomas Goodman Roberts died in 1914, aged 34.

Thank you Ellenmai and Milliepede. Attached is a transcript  of the passenger list (?) document information.
Very unlikely to have married in that timescale as you suggest, Ellenmai - not in Kings Norton anyway. :) Cae Merddyn on Puffin Island - who would have thought eh?  ;D
Charles sadly committed suicide in June 1918, mental health problems.

My great uncle Charles Goodman Roberts was born 18th March 1887, Penmon, Anglesey. As far as the family know he never married. He sailed to America (New York) on the 6th May 1911 on The Arabic. However, his status on the Ship's record when registering is given as married.
Is anybody able to check any possible marriage details please?
His obituary notice does not mention a surviving nor late spouse. Perhaps it's just an error he made on the form.
Sorry if I've posted this on the incorrect forum. Could not locate 'Marriage Look Ups'.

On the 7th December 1915 he joined the Machine Gun Corps and allotted the number 57439. It was taken at Grantham Training Camp. Picture would have been taken around then.

Many thanks Victor. My grandfather's role was to feed the bullets into a Vickers Machine Gun.

My grandfather is pictured here, standing, centre of row. I notice that he has some sort of braiding on his left shoulder, as does another in the picture. What does this represent please?
