Hello All,

May i ask for any help please re the above. His mother on his birth cert was stated as Edith Butler, but on the marriage cert to John William Aubrey Hill her name is Harriett Edith Butler, i have both certs.
I have been through marriage records from 1921 to 1930 and found two possible marriages:-
Benjamin W Hill to Mabel Beesley 3a 143 1921 Uxbridge, Middx
Benjamin Hill to Adeline E Rees 1c 882 1921 Poplar, London
But before i splash out on a cert, can anyone see Benjamin fathers name.
On the 1901 census Benjamin aged 2 and 1911 Census Benjamin aged 12 was still living with his Grandmother.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thank you.
:-)

This is the Benjamin Hill who married Adeline Rees, father Joseph, so you can eliminate that one
