Ephraim was born 1894 in Byfield northants and died in 1927 in coventry. Looking at the newspaper reports it staes he was married but we have no family records or knowledge of this. Just wondering if any body van help or guide.

David - you also have this posted on Find Ancestors - not a good idea - just one posting on Find Ancestors is all that is required - research is likely to be repeated for you

Thanks Ann

It could be this one, could they get married at 18 ? I ask this because my nan got married at 19 but declared her age as 21. Also is there any way to get more info ie his details without buying certificate.
