This is what I have so far

Edward M Land & Gladys M Hodgkins
Q2 1936 Richmond ~ 9d 1745

Edward Martin Land
Q3 1901 Bradford ~ 9b 98

Edward Martin Land
b.28 Aug 1901
Q3 1969 Weston ~ 7c 1156

Gladys May Hodgkins
Q1 1905 Coventry ~ 6d 595

Gladys May Land
b. 16 Feb 1905
Q2 1969 Weston ~ 7c 1543

Because of their births at the moment I am unable to get any further back although I will keep trying I think you will either have to send off for the marriage or birth certificate.

Also I am unable to find a marriage for Joseph Land & Isabella Wood.
