witnesses were William Edward Jenkins & Mary Jenkins

father Henry not stated as deceased

Mary's father was deceased so I would guess that Henry was still alive otherwise it would have been recorded

Have you looked for him in the censuses?

His birth?
Births Dec 1892

Was his Father still alive according to the marriage certificate?

My grandfather Edward Hornby married my grandmother Jane Naylor on 1/4/1913 in Liverpoool. I have the certificate and his age was stated as 20. His father was Henry Hornby who was a Labourer. Edward died on 2/4/1943 in Liverpool and his age was given (by my grandmother) as 49. I am trying to find out more about him but as I don't know where he was born or the names of any siblings I am struggling. Any help would be appreciated.
