Could someone please find a marriage for me please!

I did find this years ago but i have that much paper work , I did not add to my tree,
simple reason being ,he remarried ,did not marry untill late ,did not have children,
so i just kept in on paper record. ( but cannot find it!!)

Funny thing is? i cannot find it on ancestory either which is puzzling?
I know HARRY COOPER marr IDA BEATTY because i found it at Wolv registra.
He is my grandad so i,m sure of this evidence.

My mother and sisters did not take to him remarrying so soon after my grandmother died which was 1939.So i know it was around that time 1939/41
he died 1949. Ida died abt 1957.

The only marriage that keeps coming up is for a Ida Kyte? wandering if this is a spelling mistake?

Hoping someone can help! thank you

Thank you Misty for taking the time to help!!

No she was definately Ida Beatty, thats how it was spelt at Wolv reg.
they definately married and lived Bilston Wolv .



Florence Report 18 Jan 2013 14:01

Hmmmm,This is making me doubt myself??

Just wandering what evidence i did find? i know she was named ida Beatty my elder sister gave me that info. so that is definate, just wandering if she was married before? and real name is Kyte!!

( i,ve got so much paper work) under info!!

But i know i found something at wolv archives regarding her name Ida Beatty which confirmed what my sister had told me was true. baffling!!

cannot even find a marriage under the names Beatty / Kyte.

If i cannot find info then i will just have to go back to Wolv archives.

Just checking,
Is this her death?
Deaths Jun 1957
COOPER Ida 63 Bilston 9b 22


Reggie Report 18 Jan 2013 14:10

You seem rather unsure about things.........

Deaths Mar 1949 (>99%)
Cooper Harry 65 Bilston 9b 40


Reggie Report 18 Jan 2013 14:13

If I were you, I'd get the 1941 cert to find out the facts about Ida........her father's name will be recorded


Mistycat Report 18 Jan 2013 14:19

So this is her death....


Ida Cooper

Birth Date:abt 1894

Date of Registration:Apr-May-Jun 1957

Age at Death:63

Registration district:Bilston

Inferred County:Staffordshire



I cant find anything (either in Kyte or Beatty name ) that ties in with date of birth, marriages/deaths etc....have followed up and discounted all I can think of...maybe a fresh pair of eyes might help..

Have you any more info at all on Ida, please, however small...

Sorry, i am confused. What happened to Beatty?


Florence Report 18 Jan 2013 14:42

Misty and Andy,

Thank you both, Yes Andy that does look as though it fits with the age , and if she may have married more than once , but where does Beatty fit in?

Trust me ! looks like i will have to change my filing and make it easier to find things.
thanks again so good of you all to have tried to help. i am going to send for marriage and see what comes back.

Where does the name Beatty come from ?
If they never had children it couldn't be from a child's birth cert, so how did you come by it ?


Florence Report 18 Jan 2013 15:10

Hello Mike ,

Info from my late elder sister and elder brothers, i never knew my grandad only
small child at the time.
They always said Ida Beatty,

I am going through questioning myself period at this moment!!

I,m wandering if it was Ida,s second name! and i took it as surname !! but what i know is my brother found info many years ago at wolv archives , i was with him confirming that she was Ida Beatty, but what i,m wandering now is what info was it ? it was a long time ago .
was it Harry,s death quoting her name as Ida Beatty as widow and i,ve took it again as her surname? I did think it was marriage but hey !! who knows!!

I,ve given up looking for now .
I,m going to send for marriage cert or go personly.

thanks again everyone for your patience. Flo

Can't see it saying informant Ida Beatty widow ... her name would be Cooper.
