Looking at the marriage index and there is a hiccup in the system. Could this be their marriage?????

Marriages Mar 1905 (>99%)
CATNACH Edith Ann Sunderland 10a 796
>>>>>GRAHAM Mary Ann Sunderland 10a 796
VICTORY John Humble Sunderland 10a 796

Marriages Mar 1905 (>99%)
Simpson William George Sunderland 10a 79[56]

Looking at Sunderland registrars indexes

You searched for:
Marriages for the period 1901-1910: Surname = 'graham' and Forename/Initial = ''.
Surname Forename(s) Year of Marriage
GRAHAM Mary A 1905
SIMPSON William G 1905

That looks jolly good Alemap!

The district Sunderland spans the boundaries of the counties of Co. Durham and Tyne and Wear.

Thank you PH, but it was pure luck.

Noticed there were only three names so checked again using the second name and hey presto!

Checked Sunderland council website for marriages and the two names came up together, to confirm.

:-D :-D
