Sarah Griffiths
« on: Friday 17 April 20 17:09 BST (UK) »
Hi, I'm wondering if anyone could please find the details for a marriage for Sarah Griffiths and Alfred Alphaeus Bower in Ticehurst in 1932

I'm hoping for any information to show she is my ancestor, if it's the same person Sarah was born 1906 in Nerquis or Nercwys, Flintshire North Wales to George Griffiths and Maria

Other people have her in their trees as married to Alfred but I can't see any source info that shows it for certain.

I've no idea how or why she would have ended up in Sussex and its not an uncommon name in Wales.

Any help is gratefully received.

Thank you in advance

You will need to buy a copy of the cert as that info is not online.  To look up a marriage in parish records you have to know which church it took place in

Have you looked them up on the 1939 register which will give her birthdate but does not show birthplaces

Alfred was b Greenwich September qtr 1900 and the 1939 has a match to that birthyear living in Kent

I wonder if the following records might help you to decide, otherwise you may need to obtain death record.

On 1911 census age 5 at home one of 9 children

Marriage 01/1932 Ticehurst Sussex

On the 1939 register with Alfred, Sarah DOB noted as 8 Feb 1906.

Thanks both, I think I'm going to have to order their marriage certificate to be certain.

There's several trees on ancestry with this marriage but no concrete sources. Two have copied info from my own tree which was incorrect (due to auto correct on my part).

But thank you for your time.
