Trying to find out if someone was married twice
« on: Monday 28 December 20 20:09 GMT (UK) »
Evening all,

I'm trying to find out if my Great-Aunt was married twice. My family are adamant she did and a photograph we have suggests she had two husbands, but I can't find evidence of this through marriage records. Can anyone help? Her name was Eva Annie Read, born 1904 in West Ham, London (Essex on record)  Her parents were William Read and Edith Williams. Hope someone can help, I'm new to this and eyes are going cross eyed looking :)

Hi there, do you know any names for the possible husbands?  Even a first name could help and if she had any children with them.

I know one was called Harry and possibly the other was called Harry too.
They didn't have children together.

Wow thank you. Her surname I believe was Thomas when she died.

There is another marriage in 1948

Henry J Thomas
Spouse is Morris or Read which seems to fit

So I wonder if she was divorced from first husband or if he passed away?

She is with first husband in 1939 so whatever happened was between then and 1948.
