Aaaarrrgh I've just realised why that marriage cert was refused last time...  The marriage cert records only start from 1920 here so I'll have to go to the parish where they were married.

There is a John Hartford, 68 yrs widower in 1911 census. :-\

I think the marriage certificate is needed. :)

Did they not get married in Ireland?

Yes, they did indeed get married here but online records only start for marriages in 1920 unfortunately...  So its a case of going to the parish register - so I'm told  ::).

I totally missed that John Hartford aged 68!!!  It would mean that the 1901 census is 8 years out though - although I suppose in alot of cases its not accurate.

....
I've found two death records for  Margaret Power  both in 1895 - one birth year is 1831 and the other is 1833. 
...

should that not be a death cert for a Margaret Hartford (her married name) ?

I presume that restriction is to do with the local registration office. The GRO Roscommon will be able to provide the cert based on the references heywood mentioned earlier..

p.s.  I am presuming that 'here' means Ireland ...

I think we had that one earlier also.... (reply 4) we're definitely going in circles now!

I think your next step is to order a few certs from the GRO to confirm all this..
