Hull and Sculcoates
« on: Tuesday 20 February 24 12:43 GMT (UK) »
I'm trying to trace my family who moved to Sculcoates between 1881 - 1885. In 1881 they were still living at Inveresk & Musselburgh, Midlothian (now East Lothian) in Scotland. In 1885 my 2nd Great Grand Uncle James Ness Wilson married Fanny Campbell in Sculcoates. Both had lived in Inveresk in 1881. James & his Robert brought their widowed mother Janet Wilson née Ness to South Shields, Durham where she died 1893.
James & Fanny died within a couple of months in 1934 at Sculcoates but I don't know which cemetery if anyone can help.

I am not convinced Fanny or Frances/Francis was her first name because there were no birth in Scotland in the year or place she's given on various records. I am sure her birth name was Ann. Her father is named as Moses Campbell on her marriage record. But I don't know how to open/source their marriage record. I managed to get her death record from the GRO but can't work out how to do the same for the marriage.
Wilson's of Fife & the Lothians
Bruce's of Aberdeenshire
Fell's of Lanarkshire
Dewar's of Dundee & Glasgow
Kay's of Glasgow & Leith & East Lothian
Dickson/Blair/Golightly of East Lothian

I guess you mean you got a digital death record from GRO. Sadly, this isn't an option for marriage certificates so you have to go to the GRO website, https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates, and on the right hand side click on "Place an order" and then follow the instructions, putting in the vol. and page numbers.  I think you can get a PDF certificate for £7 which is cheaper than a paper certificate (£11).

James Ness Wilson was buried at Western Cemetery - he died on 11 September, notice in the Hull Daily Mail on 12 September 1934 says that the interment will be on Thursday (no date given) at 2.30 pm.  Mr Google says that 11 September 1934 was Tuesday.

From the GRO, marriages are only available as certificates but this marriage image is available on FindMyPast for £1.50 without a subscription. You need to have a free account and search Parish Marriages.
