Hi,

The Church of England marriages, if ever recorded, should be in familysearch.  The Bullawayo marriages are hear

Scroll down and click on camera image.  Related images start at image 218, had a quick look and cannot see.

You need to sign in to familysearch, but access is free.


This is list of what they have for Zimbabwe, not everything has images and some items you cannot get access.

This is what the newspaper article of Kent & Sussex Courier 06 September 1929 says in full:-

The marriage took place on Monday at Bulwayo, South Rhodesia, of Mr. Leonard Goodwin Cundell, the eldest son of Mr. A. A. Cundell, to Miss Charlotte Lee-Dillon, grand-daughter of Viscount Dillon, Ditchley, Oxfordshire.

The 6th was a Friday so the Monday would have been the 2nd of September.

May I suggest that you contact the Department of the Registrar General in Harare and ask if you would be able to obtain a copy of a 1929 marriage certificate.

Give the names and date, which according to my calculations was on Monday 2nd September 1929.

Contact details here:-

How quickly you get a response depends on whether there are any staff there.  Covid has knocked a lot of things up in the air.  ::)
