Marriage lookup please Horsham 1935 and 1940
« on: Sunday 23 August 20 11:17 BST (UK) »
I understand there is now limited opening at West Sussex record office.  Could someone do a couple of lookups for me please?

I'm interested to know the name of the bride's father for one or both of the following marriages that took place in the Horsham registration district.

1935 Q2 - Jesse C WIBLING married Alice E SMITH ref 2b 863.
1940 Q2 - Percy E SOUTH married Alice E WIBLING ref 2b 1185

I don't know which church but in the 1939 register Alice was living in Foxfield Cottages, which seem to be on Southwater Street, Horsham (Jesse had died).

Jane :-)

To look up a marriage you need to know which church it took place in.  It could have been a civil marriage which cannot be looked up

Horsham RD covered many areas

Yes Carole I know all this.  I also appreciate that if a register office marriage I'd be out of luck but was just hoping that someone would be prepared to do a bit of digging for me in the more likely parishes.  There might even be indices.

Following on from my original post, the 1935 groom's father's name is of interest too.

Best wishes
Jane :-)

Have you checked that these records are currently available for searching, some offices are restricting what can be viewed.  'Digging' in records at these times is sometimes not so easy as it was

Doesn't the register reference actually give some indication as to which church or if it was register office?
