Can anyone tell me details of a marriage of Henry W. Harding to Rosa Bayliss- Sept Qtr 1922 Hackney 1b 875.
I have a Henry W. Harding who was divorced 1919 and am trying to find out if he remarried 1922. Many thanks for any help given.

Only the marriage certificate will give you the details

he is listed as Henry W
she is listed as Rosa Baylis.

Only one S in the name, on Freebmd, but you would have to buy the cert for details, the LMA records have marriages but only to 1921.

Some background:

So Henry didn't die in 1914?


Sylvia Report 7 Jan 2013 19:58

No, After me sending for a D/Cert. Wrong info on someone's tree. I have above info. but so many Henry W. Harding's cannot send for all. Have to pay for wrong D/Cert.
Amersham death looks good.
If he did not apply for Divorce until 1919 perhaps he was in 1st World War as his wife had two children by Edward Buffy 1913 and 1914. Cannot find anything but perhaps some kind sleuth on here can see something I cannot.
Kind regards,

Were the two births to Edward Duffy in 1913 and 1914 both girls - Jean and Winifred? If so then there are two people on Genes with these girls in their trees. Have you contacted them to see if they have any information?

EDIT - just looked at your other thread and realize that you have already been given this information.
