The advice about purchasing the marriage cert is sound..................as there seem to be some doubts, it is an essential document

Reggie

Reggie Report 1 May 2013 08:29

No record on freebmd of birth for Emily to match the death info (if it's hers, of course)

This is the only Emily Alice in the County in the right time-scale

Do you know when and where your grandparents died?

I should start by ordering the marriage certificate, if you do not have it.

It should give you the names of the fathers and the ages Harry and Emily ................ that then gives clues to finding them in records before their marriage.


Neither of them have very unusual names, so every little bit of help is needed!


Also, ask any living relatives for any knowledge that theymight have, to help you flesh out the picture.

For information ..................


this is the marriage of your father's parents

It can be found on www.freebmd.org.uk, a free site that you can us to find births marriages and deaths in England and Wales form the start of registration on July 1 1837, up to about 1960

Marriages Dec 1925 (>99%)
Booth Emily A Gunn Cambridge 3b 1187
Gunn Harry Booth Cambridge 3b 1187


If you buy this certificate, it should tell you the names of the 2 fathers and their occupations, the ages of Harry and Emily, and where they were living.


you buy certificates from the following site

http://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/default.asp

you have to register, but it is free.

All certificates cost £9.25, which includes p&P even for overseas.

Never pay any more than that

Welcome to the boards - thrre are lots of Gunn's in Cambridge - can you give a rough year in the 1800s and the name of their children including your father's name

Also, if you read the postings at the top of Find Ancestors board that will give you some idea on how to search

One place to search is the free Mormon site - www.familysearch.org
