Is this your Mother's parents' marriage?

Marriages September quarter 1917
Richard Chard                    Bedwellty    11a   198    
 Agnes M   Hutchings    Bedwellty    11a   198

If correct marriage and he born around 1899, he would have been about 18 when he married?

Buy the marriage certificate for information about his Father?

Richard Chard born in North Petherton is in a tree on Ancestry.  Do you have access to it?
