Only your parents would know how they if they didn't tell you, I guess you will never find out

I don't know how my parents met.............

You just have to accept that some things can't be found out

My late mums siblings knew how she met my father and have told me many tales of their courtship .........

Is this an avenue you could pursue Dutch?

found them

name: Herbert Morgan
Spouse Surname: Miller
Date of Registration: Apr-May-Jun 1935
Registration District: Conway
Inferred County: Caernarvonshire
Volume Number: 11b
Page Number: 1024
Find Spouse: May Miller

so was pre war. I did wonder cos many got evacuated.

Researching my family I found lots of the girls born in SE london were sent into domestic service and went out of the area. remember my mum telling us how she was a kitchen maid in a boys school in Berkshire the 1920,s and her weekly chore of cleaning the BIG ovens in the kitchen.

If someone can check the electoral rolls for 1935 it may shed some light .BUT you may never know how they found each other
