Thank you. Yes I've spotted your comment now after re reading. Just found their marriage and her death.
Thank again

As already indicated, I've submitted a correction........also for Josephine

And it's easy to find the marriage on freebmd

Thank you for this. Can I just check his initials as it should be Wilfred J C Elkins.but everything else matches, dob and occupation both correct.
This is such great news as I never knew he actually married. Also been told than he was single and after his younger brother passed away he moved in with his widowed sister-in-law as a lodger.

Would someone be able to search the 1939 register again please.

For a Josephine M L Elkins (nee Curtis) born 1907 Southampton. Should be living with Wilfred Joseph Elkins.

Many thanks
