Hi everyone

Bit of a long story - we have been struggling with this relative for some time now - he was a seaman in the Merchant Navy and drowned in 1875 - we found a marriage to Sarah Maria Quested in 1874 (in Lambeth) but have no other information - he appears to be a ghost, we have had another look today and see the marriage for Emily a year before - not sure if this is our relative but was trying to see if we could find that marriage cert on line to see if there were any clues

Thanks :-)

What area?
And did they actually marry - as shown in 1881 census?

I am looking to see whether there is a marriage for Henry Charles Bridger to an Emily Bennett in 1873 - I have found that the banns have been read on Ancestry for 30 March, 6 and 13 April but cannot find the actual marriage.

Would anyone mind looking for me :-D

Many Thanks
