South Africa / marriage in Cape Province 1888
« on: Thursday 09 July 20 12:03 BST (UK)  »
Hi,
    desperate to find parents of Amy Harrison.
    Affidavit shows intended marriage to Thomas Reid 5th April 1888 Cape province.
    The marriage took place ( i dont know where or when ) and daughter Alice Reid was born 28th June 1903.
    Can i get a marriage certificate and would it show her parents as here in UK?

I,m sure she was ATS as she was a telephonist.

she was in the Kenyan army.I don't know when she was called up but I know she was in when she got married 5th July 1944 which was also her 21st birthday. Probably discharged later that year as I was born April 1945. Her british passport says british subject by birth and wife of british subject and was issued by colony and protectorate of Kenya.

My mother was born in South Africa from british settlers. her family moved to Kenya which was then British East Africa. She was called up for national service. She married my father who was a sergeant in the british army and was discharged when she became pregnant. Was she entitled to any medals?

    Looks like i'll have to get a marriage certificate for Peter S.R. Staples and Rose E. Carter to take this further      ..bigjon

Nottinghamshire / Re: are all burials recorded
« on: Thursday 23 January 20 13:54 GMT (UK)  »
thanks guys
    1939 shows her living in Mansfield Woodhouse but I think after that she lived in  Hucknall. I have checked cem. records with both councils but nothing shows. Could she be in unmarked grave within workhouse grounds?
