Trying to find marriage
« on: Tuesday 16 March 21 12:45 GMT (UK) »
Hello there , I am trying to find a marriage for a Winifred Joyce Allen born 1927 in Camberwell London but also lived in Bristol at one point . Her parents were Norah Alice McCormack and Frederick Allen ... I have searched the normal databases Which show Winifred J Allen , how can I establish which marriage it is ? Can I get this info from microfiche held at Main library's ? Many thanks for any advice

Have you located her on the 1939 register as that may have been amended to show her married name

No I haven't been able to locate her or her sister Lillian I Allen and I believe a brother Frederick Allen ...

The fiche will only show the index that is also available online at the GRO or freebmd.  Unless the marriage shows on one of the online websites you will have to purchase certificates.

Her parents married in 1913, possible male triplets in Camberwell area in 1923 , they all died the same quarter as infants

How sad to give birth to three children and lose them all.

Is it just the children you can't find in 1939 or are their parents nowhere to be seen either.

Where do you have any of the family in records?

Yes, I saw that.
I meant in later years - their deaths maybe?
Where they in Camberwell or Bristol?
Any other family?
