Marriages Dec 1931 (>99%)

Mundy Charles H Taylor Wycombe 3a 2430
Taylor Mary Mundy Wycombe 3a 2430

Ordering the cert from the GRO will give you their father's names.

Hello Paul, you really need to order a copy of the birth certificate so you can be 100% sure of the facts. This is the record:

England & Wales, FreeBMD Birth Index, 1837-1915
Name: Charles Henry Mundy
Date of Registration: Jan-Feb-Mar 1907
Registration district: Thame
Inferred County: Oxfordshire
Volume: 3a
Page: 1042

You can order direct from GRO for £9.25 http://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/
Tick the box where it asks if GRO reference is known (it's shown on the record I posted)

To find out anything about Mary's family you really need their 1931 marriage certificate (posted further up) - with a name like hers there are just too many to guess at!
