Can't find this marriage. Help please
« on: Wednesday 26 October 16 10:19 BST (UK) »
William Henry Atkinson married Lilian May Caley and had first child William Henry born 21st September 1923 at Halifax Yorkshire.

Before this marriage Lilian May Burman /Borman was married to Robert Caley. Marriage place Laceby Lincoln. 20th May 1913. Robert died 1919 in Grimsby.

I cannot find a marriage of a Lilian May Caley to a William Henry Atkinson between 1919 and 1923.

Can anyone help please?

Hello,

Was William married before? Perhaps that is why there may not be a marriage.

Regards
Heywood

I am afraid I don't know but even if he had been married before and a first wife died, could there not have been a 2nd marriage and that would be to Lilian May?

thanks

I can't find one either, perhaps there wasn't one.

I had a similar situation with my aunt, I always thought she was married but couldn't find the marriage. Eventually I found an earlier marriage for her "husband" so I presume he never divorced so she just took his name and they lived as husband and wife. No-one would ever know would they, just assume they were married.

I was thinking that the first wife could still be alive.

Do you have an occupation and year of birth for William?

the only other thing I have is that William Henry Atkinson died in Blackpool 1936 at the age of 62 so born c1874 but I don't know where?

thanks

I can't see a death with those details either!

The child's birth certificate would give William's occupation which might help you to find him in 1911.
