Bertha Olive Nouch
« on: Friday 03 July 20 05:19 BST (UK) »
 I am looking for information on this lady.
 We believe she married a Thomas Alfred Wood b 7th Jan 1920. He was the son of Harold (Harry) Charles Sidney Wood and Patience. That marriage would probably have been during the WW2 period.
I have not been able to find any birth or marriage record with her name.
Thank you for your assistance David

Hmm interesting, I've found this marriage

Marriages Jun 1943 

Wood    Bertha O    Wood    Pancras    1b   11   
Wood    Thomas A    Wood    Pancras    1b   11

Now I don't know if Wood is really Bertha's surname or someone slipped up and repeated Thomas's surname.

There is a birth of a Bertha Olive Wood with mmn Bruce that might fit with the marriage Girl Guide found

Looking at other Wood births in Pancras on FreeBMD with mothers maiden name Bruce and family trees links back to this possible parents marriage

Anything is possible with family history isn't it  ::)

I can find quite a few Nouch births but not one for Bertha.  I don't know if the marriage certificate may reveal more information.

I couldn't find any Nouch/Wood marriages on free bmd between 1900 and 1945.

Just a thought - there is a later marriage in St Pancras in 1951 of a Bertha O Wood to an Edwin Excell - i wonder if this might be the relevant  :-\
