I have just found :-
Marriages Mar 1889
Harrison James William Bradford Y.
9b 261

Whitaker Jane Bradford, Y.
9b 261

so I know that I have the right man but there is a choice in earlier census so I wondered if anyone could find this marriage with his father's name to find his family with parents ans siblings, if there were any please

Many thanks,
Frances

Above says James was married 23 years, but he is in fact a widower - Jane's name crossed out on image.

I just found this death, which correspods with her birth year of 1864, so the idea of dying in childbirth is probably wrong

I am still catching up, so thanks to AnnCardiff and Astra - my money is now on George and Rhoda. A marriage certificate seems to be the way forward, for certainty
