Does George name his father on the wedding certificate ?

No birth for George Edwin Wright in 1911 so maybe Wright was his stepfather's name

Reggie

Reggie Report 5 Feb 2013 10:52

The MMN is on the index.......finding the marriage should not prove too difficult for the OP

I doubt that he has the marriage cert............

The birth is on freebmd........you are forgetting that when the MMN was added to the index, the full second forename was not recorded

The death which I posted shows his DOB

Mike * Report 5 Feb 2013 11:01

Without knowing where he was born he could be any George E.

If the MMN was indeed Peters, this is the family in 1911
