An update on Harry
Confirmed that Harry married Ethel Cohen in 1932
Listed in marriage cert that he was a widower age 45 and Ethel was a spinster age 23
I also confirm he died in 1940 in the Royal infirmary in Manchester
Confirming his profession as listed throughout as a Film Renter traveller..

Interesting I picked up his brother Lazarus Morris death cert from 1961 and he was listed as a profession as Manager Film Distributors .. Informant of Lazarus was his Niece J.N. Seal.. I wonder if the brothers had worked together .. Lazarus was known as Leslie

Would be grateful for any further assistance as to potential previous marriage for Harry Morris that was before 1932

Note - It may be possible that Harry Morris covered a little time in Wakefield prison under the Bastardy Law .. This is a fair possible Committed offence in Sheffield and listed as a Tailor .. He had been previously listed in census as a Tailors apprentice and was living in Sheffield at abt this time .. Is there any way to get further information from a register from a prison? 

Thanks guys
Regards
Scott

Can anyone help narrow down another marriage ?
In the GRO uk site for indexes is there a way to check an index for marriage ? I use help from ancestry but really would be keen to understand the GRO site better if a way of checking is available? Looking for an index that lists both couples names... not so user friendly or maybe my understanding is not so good and there is a smarter way to navigate index via ancestry ? Any advice would be very welcome ..
I am looking for another marriage of Harry Morris based on the marriage cert for Harry Morris and Ethel Cohen .. Harry is mentioned as a widower in the 1932 cert ...Jewish wedding 
He has been a traveller listed as a film renter... his brother Lazarus Morris who died in Cardiff 1961 is listed as a film distributor .. I would suspect Harry would have seen a Jewish wedding consistent with his second marriage .. Harry’s father is Benjamin Morris .... Harry born in 1886 Cheltenham ..

Thanks team
Regards
Scott Morland
