Seeking marriage details...

I was looking for possible marriage of x and i believe this person may of been married twice as the name is exactly the same in the same area with just 3 yrs separating them so possibly a divorce involved. If anyone would care to verify i will post details in PM. Thanks

Smith.....! you'd have to buy the certs to prove one way or the other.

Not wanting to get involved, but if the query is about a woman....

Any chance that they had any children? The mother's maiden name would still be the same even if she was 'formally' (divorced/widowed)

Its a bloke by the name of Smith, with two forenames that seemingly marries twice in the same place 3 years apart

no idea from the index if its the same bloke, very common forenames too.

How about children to the first marriage? Can they be found after the 2nd marriage - if so then it's two different people.
This depends on the MMN being unusual enough!
Penny's right, the only real answer id to get the marriage certs.
