Welcome to the boards Rebecca.

Might be worth looking at for info.

http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/records/looking-for-person/divorce.htm

However, it might help people if you say when you are looking at and also why you believe a divorce took place.
Needless to say, avoid giving names of living people!

Hi Rebecca,

Welcome.

Is this Divorce before 1937 or after?

Kind regards
Amanda

Many of those at Kew have now been transcribed and are available on Ancestry.

I had been contemplating buying copies of a divorce last year and did not bother, and it is now on Ancestry RESULT!!!!!!
