Copying over from the other thread - Alice's marriage.

Name: Leonard Buckley
Birth Year: abt 1904
Gender: Male
Age: 23
Event Type: Marriage
Marriage or Bann Date: 4 Jun 1927
Parish: Bexley, Kent, England
Father: Ambrose Buckley
Spouse: Alice Wood <<<<
Spouse Age: 20
Spouse Gender: Female
Spouse Father: James Wood <<<<<
Parish as it Appears: Bexley
Chapelry: St Mary the Virgin

Which implies the 1902 Wood/Honess marriage and 1908 birth for Alice is correct

the image of the marriage to Leonard is on Ancestry.

He's a Farm Labourer age 23 living at 'Maplescombe', Farningham. His father Ambrose is also a Farm Labourer (not that you are interested in him)

Alice is age 20, no occupation, living at 8 Baldwyns Rd, Bexley. Her father James is a Builder's Labourer.

Witnesses James Wood and Arthur Crutts?

The 1911 census gives

George Wood Son Single Male 19 1892 Woolwich Kent Labourer On Farm

Assuming his birth was registered in Woolwich, might this be his birth reg?

WOOD, GEORGE EDWARD CHARLES (mmn) MCINTYRE
GRO Reference: 1893 S Quarter in WOOLWICH Volume 01D Page 1225

EDIT - NOT James & Anne's son
