How do you find out about a divorce, two people I knew a long time ago wed in 1984 in Hull, I do not know where they are now & I wondered if they might have got a divorce, they are Mark D Fenton & Debbie Kirkham they wed in Hull in 1984

There seems to be an entry on the Electoral roll for Debbie on living in Sheffield to 2016.
Mark is not on the roll after 2015.

IF they’ve divorced since then, the records wouldn’t be in the public domain. You’d need to apply to the Courts for Search and that could cost ££

Will pm last known address & the names of their 1986 & 1989 daughters. It’s possible you could look for them all on social media/ Facebook.
