There are probably 30-40 marriage for Harry Evans to a Florence between 1901 and 1925. More if you use Henry instead of Harry

you have that info but didn't think to include it in your post.

What else do you know that would help us search ?

Was Joan younger or older than Nancy ?

Where did Harry and Florence live ?
