Looking for a marriage certificate
« on: Saturday 21 July 18 10:17 BST (UK) »
Hello I am trying to track down a marriage certificate for my grandparents Jean McLean to Thomas Yeates what I think is November 1917 in the district of ELHAM ?????
I actually have it in front of me but can't read much. I was so sure they were married in Greenock Scotland but I think this place is in Canterbury England . A website where I could order a new one would be great thanks

If you can post snippets of a scan of the original certificate with the bits you can't read, we may be able to help without you having to buy another.

ADDED: Because if it's the writing you can't read, another copy will be exactly the same!!

Could you give us a little more in formation about Thomas and Jean to explain why you think they married in Greenock?

There is only one Thomas Yeates marriage showing up for 1917 on scotlandspeople and that took place in Bellshill to a Margaret Cairns Stewart.

If Thomas and Jean's child was born in Scotland, will their birth certificate have information about the marriage?

Yes - Scottish register copies of births have the parents' date and place of marriage.

Added later - the births for Yeates are 1918 and later - copies of the register aren't available online. (The 1918 birth, for James, will be online in January 2019).

Certificates can be ordered  - they cost 12 pounds each.
