Army marriage in Peshawar
« on: Tuesday 09 November 21 09:31 GMT (UK) »
How would I obtain a marriage certificate for an army officer (RAMC) who married in Peshawar (now Pakistan) in 1940?

If it's listed in the Army Marriages index then you'll be able to order a certificate from the GRO in the UK.

Can you give us the name(s) ?

Thanks.
I thought that was the case but couldn't find him. That may just be my incompetence.
His name is Donal Ahern.

No the marriage doesn't seem to be listed in the army returns index. Per online trees it was on 21 April 1940, to Joyce Douglas Chaplin.

Thanks for your help.
Yes, I know the details but their son just needs their marriage certificate.

This might require a visit to the British Library to view the Peshawar marriage registers for 1940

I agree; and had already sent him a link to the BL resources.
