I have a george dunn marrying a rose ellen hallam in 1930 in long eaton....georges father was james william dunn and roses father was james hallam - Im not sure where george dunn was born although his residency address for marriage was long eaton... I think that he may have come form staffordshire - but might be wrong he was 26 in 1930

Several James Dunn's who had that trade in 1911 but none recorded with a son named George.

However how about this for a possibility? Would have been 26 in 1930. Born in the district where the marriage took place, Shardlow.

????
Am throwing this one into the mix for the moment. Long Eaton is where you say the marriage took place - and the RD is Shardlow for both. Occupation doesn't match but the census and marriage are 19 years apart

I looked at that one too. I wonder if the head of the house was using his middle name as they had a son James too?

Who were the witnesses on the marriage cert please?

Yes - burton on trent sounds about right for james william dunn
Mel - the names of the witnesses on the marriage cert are something H Smith and something M Hallam
