Marriage for October 1921
« on: Thursday 20 January 22 16:34 GMT (UK) »
My great uncle Ralph McMullen married Hilda Carmen Blakey in October 1921.  Marriage records show place of marriage as Prestwich but I have a photograph outside the church which has writing on the back showing - "Ralph & Hilda's marriage St Anne's Crumpsall."
Can any kind person find the marriage registration showing the wedding was in St Anne's? Could St Anne's have been classed as Crumpsall?
Any help appreciated

Crumpsall parish page on Lancashire Online Parish Clerks.
www.lan-opc.org.uk/Manchester/Crumpsall/index.html
"Confusion arises as to where the boundaries lie"
St. Anne's R.C. church is Crumpsall. Founded 1917. A registrar would have attended wedding.
St. Anne's registers aren't on LAN-OPC.

Added. Lancashire BMD says registers are at Manchester Archives Manchester Central Library.
