This has confirmed the marriage completely for me now as John lived on Gisburn Road on the marriage certificate and one of their witnesses was Hartley Clark, the other drunk man!

Now to find out when she died! Thanks so much to you and Rosie!

I found it on FindMyPast

Wonderful find! It's as good to be proved wrong, as proved right, isn't it? - I wondered if the chapel might have been an Inghamite chapel ... they had the reputation of being a little more relaxed, certainly more recently were amongst the first to deal with divorced couples.

Hi Yorky, the chapel was/is called wheatley lane chapel and was indeed a Inghamite chapel, I don't know much about these? Where Martha and John were living they had a church in spitting distance yet they chose to go to this chapel which was about 4 mile away. That kind of says it all doesn't it?

I don't know a lot about Inghamites, except that they were dissenters, started by a Yorkshireman, Ben Ingham, I think, and a very independent lot. Eventually most of the Inghamite congregations drifted into Methodism, I think. I just have the idea that they were rather more liberal re. re-marrying divorcees at a time when that was very difficult ... but I could be wrong. Think there are only a very few - of which Wheatley Lane is one - left, now.
Hope that's a bit of help.
TY
