Hi,

Welcome from me too.  :)

Those locations are in New South Wales, Australia.  Are you looking for additional information about these ancestors?

Alice died in Sydney in Dec 1914.

Hi there, Kim,

Re that marriage transcript for Alice and Walter,   would it be for the following marriage:
NSW BDM reference 930/1886
Walter H DAVIS and Alice CRAWFORD, registered Sydney?  married 17 May 1886?

The transcription should have the denomination (according to the rites of), and the names of the witnesses,  and it is likely it does NOT have the ages of the bride and groom, or their places of birth, or the names of their parents or their dad's occupations...   Not at all unusual for NSW BDM marriage certs for that era.  The NSW BDM never completed the task of reconciling their own summary records with the church registers.    Here is a now very long thread I did up to help RChatters overcome those elusive blanks. https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=546609.0

If you could please type up the scant info that is on that transcription, I will see if I can advance your quest, perhaps finding some info on the couple and/or their witnesses circa 1886.

Here is the newspaper announcement about the marriage I found indexed at NSW BDM.   
https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/107290120 28 May 1886, Evening News
MARRIAGES.
DAVIS—CRAWFORD.  May 17, at 245 Elizabeth Street, Sydney, by the Rev. Dr. Fullerton, Mr. Walter Henry Davis, of Pitt Street, Sydney, to Miss Alice Crawford, of Sydney.   


Rev Fullerton's registers are often scant on info, so it may not be possible to glean the parents names from his (Presbyterian) registers, he had a reputation for conducting marriage shops (over 400 marriage ceremonies in one year !).   https://adb.anu.edu.au/biography/fullerton-james-3582

Hi majm
It looks like Alice married Walter Henry Davis in May 1886, Sydney.
I think that marriage is not for the correct Alice – parents are wrong.
It relates to this death cert

GREENAWAY ALICE
14626/1914   GEORGE     HANNAH
SYDNEY

 And to this birth

CRAWFORD ALICE
74/1868    GEORGE      HANNAH
SYDNEY

I have been hoping that Kim might provide some clear information (as requested in reply 1 and 2 ) about what help is needed, and anything that is already know about this family.

I will post some more information about the other marriage below.
