Reggie is right. All the info is on freebmd

The births for both the Burns and Binns children do exist, and their mother's maiden name was Fannon.

Josephine can check the marriages and children for herself on freebmd

Tree on Anc has daughter Elizabeth Fannon ( b1888) being married twice.

The tree owner appears to be closely connected.

The info says that Elizabeth married 1st to John Burns and 2nd to William Binns.
There are no dates of marriage in the tree but further descendancy follows children from this 2nd marriage.

Unable to spend much time on this today, but perhaps another researcher could pick this up and check it for you, or at least check that these marriages do exist

Marriage to John Burns 1908 (4th quarter) CHORLTON
3 daughters born between 1910 and 1914

2nd Marriage ( Elizabeth Burns) to William Binns 1921 (4th quarter) CHORLTON
7 children born between 1921 and 1934

If you hope to find links on GR - look in 'search trees' - provided by GR for just that purpose. It's in the dark green bar at the top

You could also try researching him yourself, by looking at the freebmd website

Or the Lancs site
