Start by using GR's 'search all trees' which is provided to help to find links on the site.

Have you tried using freebmd to research them?

Did they all remain in England?

Thanks for the look ups I think you have the right people.... Michael MURRAY born in 1913 I believe is the right one....

Parents of Edward MURRAY are Michael MURRAY and Bridget WELCH Bridget died in 1892 and Michael died 1898.. 1901 Edward was living with a Sister Mary Ann and Her Husband Thomas SAVAGE..

Parents of Louisa BOWDITCH ..so far from the Marriage Cert I can only confirm the Father Thomas John BOWDITCH..who was born in 1852 Mother I think is Sarah maiden name is also BOWDITCH

Louisa Death in 1949 sounds like the right one......
