HI, I'm trying to find William Dixon's first marriage, he was born 1910 in Co Durham, so I assume his marriage was sometime in 1930s. His father's name was also William. His second marriage was in 1942 to M Sainsbury.

Many thanks

This is the only other marriage of a William I Dixon after 1928 - I assumed he would be at least 18:

Any idea if he had any children with his first wife,and if yes then what were their names and approx dates and place of birth?
The birth record for one of them will give you mother's maiden name and so it will be easier to confirm any marriage found.

I am guessing the info might have been from the marriage cert? Did it say divorced or widower?

HI brummie Jan and Catherine, many thanks for your prompt responses. I think William had a daughter, Sheila, with his first wife, who was born in 1930s.

thanks once again.
