Welcome to the boards.
There seem to be 4 children to this marriage, is that right?. The names are pretty unusual - have you tried Facebook, Friends Reunited or 192.com?

One of the siblings appears to have married in Rochdale? But that might be you of course!
EDIT 2 others also married Rochdale, so that is where I suspect they moved to. 2 of them show up on 192.con as living there 2003.

How strange . Must be the same marriage though

Perhaps he was known as James. Which could be one of his Christian names
