If you can find out what year either James Rowan or Florence Lydon were born and where we may be able to look them up on the 1911 but we can't go any further than that census, sorry.

Its really difficult as my grandmother mary K Rowan and her siblings died and no information was past onto my father i think this was due to the fact the children may have been separated and put into some form of care ( orphanages) I would love find out more about them all...thank you all for your help

Marriage certificates usually give you the age the couple were when they married.........whether or not they had been married before.........Residence at time of marriage.........occupation at time of marriage...........The names of their Fathers (If known!) and their Fathers occupations.
