Can someone take a look at this on something other than Ancestry please.

Name: Alice Smiriam Pascall

but then there is this one with the same numbers but a person missing and one is in Walsall and one Wolverhampton.

Would there be two different marriages in different areas with the same ref numbers???????????

Margee That is quite a possible for John with his parents and maybe grandparents as John's son was George.

You should buy George's birth cert to be certain of his mothers maiden name.

The one KathleenBell put up.

I have a John Parry born 1870 in Bronington Wales
in 1901 and 1911 census he is in Stone Staffs and he has a son George Edward born 1895 in Stone, and a wife Alice

according to the 1911 census he married Alice approx 1901 and she states she has had no children

what I can't find is any baptism record for George to try to find out his mother's name, neither can I find John on the 1891 census

if anyone can help or point me in the direction of Staffs records thankyou
