TO DO LIST
Calculate a year range for the marriage search by establishing when the youngest spouse would have been of marriageable age and when their eldest children were born. Use freebmd.org.uk or a subscription site to search for marriages in England and Wales. Make a note of the year and quarter, the full name of the bride or groom, the registration district and reference numbers. Using this information, order a copy of the certificate from gro.gov.uk.
