My grandmother told me that she may already have the marriage certificate, so fingers crossed I won't have to pay for a new copy.

The death notices are probably connected, the only thing odd about them is that it says Annie died in August, when in fact she definitely died in July.

The mother's death notice is strange however, as the only Greenwood I could find on genealogysa.org.au that died in South Australia in 1890 is a Mabel Isabel, but on findagrave it says she died in September, so I suspect that the mother mentioned in The Age may have died with a different last name.

New update:
I have now got the marriage certificate and it provides the following information about Charles Greenwood:
He was born c. 1863 in Cheapside, London, to Charles Greenwood and Annie Freebody. He worked as a packing case maker while Johanna was a box maker. His father was apparently a steamer captain.

The marriage certificate will be a good source of information in your research.  We need to use all the information.

Can you please list all the information on the certificate.....names, dates, occupations, ages, place names, church, witnesses.....everything please.
