Marriage info West Ham 1919
« on: Wednesday 09 May 18 15:44 BST (UK) »
Hi there

I am just wondering if there is any way to get info from a marriage certificate without having to order the certificate itself?

Marriages Sep 1919   (>99%)
Curley    Joseph    Johnson    W.Ham    4a   699   

I am only looking for the name and occupation of the father of Joseph Curley in this union. If any one knows a way or a website to find out this info that would be great!

Thank you

- K

A parish marriage can sometimes be looked up if (a) you can identify the parish and (b) the relevant parish entries have been digitised and published.  This would be the exception rather than the rule for a date as late as 1919, though West Ham is not an area I know much about researching in.  For earlier dates, http://www.marriage-locator.co.uk/ is a useful resource for parish identification, but it doesn't as yet have any coverage as late as 1919.  Catholic church registers are much less likely to have been digitised than Church of England parish registers.

A civil marriage in a register office cannot under any circumstances be looked up, whatever the date.

Marriages Sep 1919
Curley    Joseph    Johnson    W.Ham    4a   699

I think this one is going to be a parish church marriage. Possibly in Woodford?
So you may find the marriage online on SEAX. But you would have to pay to find out, unless someone does a look up.

On FamilySearch, we have the marriage of Walter George Freeman + Mabel Thomerson, which was at Walthamstow St Peter, and is indexed on page 637 in West Ham, Sep 1919.

and there's Alfred William Bliss + Violet Gwendoline Tegg, who married at Woodford Bridge, 11 August 1919. Indexed on page 761

In between are "marriages", but are in fact banns, at Holy Trinity, S Woodford
i.e. Eric Ainslie Poritt +  Doris Lilian Baldry, 29 June 1919
but marriage is registered in Sep qtr, page 665
Both were of the parish, so that marriage should be at H.T.

So those marriages/page numbers point to Woodford area. Hopefully!

And I said it would probably have been in Woodford! Sorry.
Well found, Mark.
