There are a few Henry Gregson's around - you could do with his birth year to sort out when he died.

You would need to know Henry's age at marriage and his fathers name from the cert to follow his through

I am trying to research the Gregson side of my family. All I know is that my Grandfather was known as Harry Gregson all the records I have found on this site refer to him as Henry Gregson. The family originate from the Blackburn/Burnley.
Harry had a son named Clifford who was born in 1929 but unfortunately died in 1994 in Taunton. He was married to Clifford's mother in about late 1928/1929.
Harry then lived with a lady by the name of Marha Young until Harry's death in 1966ish"
Any info from anyone would be appreciated.
