Hello Scott,

If I understand you correctly, you have the original marriage certificate in Russian. This makes things a bit trickier, because the original rendering in Polish has been transliterated into Russian. From 1868 to 1918/9, all vital records in Poland were in Russian.

UPDATE: I see from one of your earlier posts that the date and place of marriage were recorded on the birth cert of their daughter, Leah. Can you please post a snippet of the image here?

You have to think phonetically, but Kadysz is the most likely Polish spelling of the Anglicised form Cadish. A kadish is a traditional Hebrew prayer for the dead.

Yiddish forms of Sarah are Sore, Sora, Sure, etc.

Benjamin's Anglicised surname Morris is most commonly linked to the Hebrew name Mosheh, i.e. Moses. Where have you come across the link to Mendel?

Will do Justin regards the birth certificate with marriage ... bare with me ... the link to Mendel was strange as it was identified on a birth certificate of one of there children .. the inconsistencies were a few throughout the various census info and birth certs .. x marks were used and maiden name Kaddish was various spellings but Sarah used Mendel in one and I wondered if she mistakenly referred to a name that coulda may have been married name previous before Morris ?

as mentioned the number of inconsistencies has been there to see.. Numerous varients and o doubt English was limited.. The Mendel name is interesting.. This address links up with the census 1901 foe the family in Sheffield  Solly Street.... Sarah has used various forms of surname spellings which I have no doubt is the transcription of what was interpreted.. Cadish.. Kadish Cardish etc... under maiden name .. to use Mendel under Maiden I wondered if this was Sarah sharing her marriage name before changing to Morris??? Ifs and buts I know but a possible clue
