Vera May Wood and Frank Charles Jones?
« on: Friday 06 May 16 19:23 BST (UK) »
Hi all,

I can't seem to find this couple on any census record, and I can't find any birth records for either of them either.  ???

I know that they married in Portsmouth in 1928 and that they lived at 36 Lindley Avenue, Southsea. They had a daughter in 1933 and the family moved to Devon at some point thereafter.

I was wondering if anyone has any information about this couple??

Thanks in advance

Does this look like their marriage?

https://familysearch.org/search/record/results?count=20&query=%2Bgivenname%3A%22vera%20may%22~%20%2Bsurname%3Awood~%20%2Bbirth_place%3Aportsmouth~%20%2Bbirth_year%3A1900-1910~%20%2Bspouse_givenname%3A%22frank%20charles%22~%20%2Bspouse_surname%3Ajones~%20%2Brecord_country%3AEngland

No census records have been released after 1911.  You might try the voter lists though

Hi, the first result is indeed their marriage. I will have a good look through the voter lists, thank you :)
