Did they marry in Scotland?
If they did you will have to check Scotlands People

What is your link to this couple

ADDED
From your post in 2008
I cannot find a marriage for Arthur Holden & Agnes Beattie.
I have looked on the Scots site.
Agnes was a daughter of James W Beattie & Sarah Thomson Seaton of Dumfries.
She was born C:-1908
Arthur believe that he was born in Dumfries (dob ??????)
What I do know is that after the supposed marriage they moved to Oxford as Arthur worked as a painter at the Morris Car Works at Cowley,they did not have any children.
They lived at Ridgefield Road Oxford.

Hi Rosie
I also could not them on SP.
I am 2nd Great grandson to William Beattie . James .W.Beattie was a grandson of William
He married Sarah.T.Seaton.Agnes.M.was a daughter from this marriage.
From what I have been told is Arthur worked as a spray painter for the Morris car Co.
In 1950 from information received ( from a death notice in Canada) It reads Mrs Arthur (Agnes) Holden from London England.

Agnes was born in Scotland 1908(verified)

There is no birth registration on Scotlands people in 1908 for an Agnes M Beattie, there is a Agnes Martin Beattie in 1909.  Where were the family in 1911, could you please give details

With Holden??are you connected in anyway??????

The only information that I have on the is what I posted.
Interesting to see in the replies that you have posted "they did not have any children also that they lived at Ridgefield Road Oxford."',this information I did not know.
I have not verified with SP to the middle name for Agnes,within my research (for Beattie) there is no Martin mentioned,although Mary runs in the research for Beattie(s)

I have no connections to Holdens, just trying to help.

The reply I posted about her not having children and giving an address in Oxford was a quote from you on a post in 2008 - Quote from: baldy on Wednesday 13 February 08 05:42 GMT (UK)

Where are the Beattie family in 1911
