Is this marriage missing from SP?
« on: Sunday 19 June 22 14:24 BST (UK) »
Can anyone find this marriage on SP? I've tried using every combination of names, date, place, without success. I don't need a look-up, just to find it if it is there.

West Lothian Courier 19 June 1908
GRAHAM—MARTIN.—In the St John's U.F. Church, Bathgate, on Thurs. 18th June, by the Rev. John Lindsay, M.A., St John's Church, Thomas E.L. Graham, Glasgow, to Margaret Hamilton, daughter of Archibald Martin, commercial traveller, Bathgate.

Thomas' full name is Thomas Emilius Lambert Graham, and the marriage definitely took place. Margaret's death was registered by Thomas.

If they had any children born in Scotland have you checked their birth records for confirmation of the marriage date (and place)

Added : any confirmation in the childrens records would boost any complaint to SP regarding a missing index entry, although not definitive if the two pieces of "evidence" matched it is a stronger case.

Thank you, rosie17 and Falkyrn.
I wanted to check that it's not just me failing to find it.
The couple had one son that I know of, so I'll check his birth entry as suggested.
