Simon, re your reply to my private message: you apply for certificates here (never through any commercial service because they charge double or triple the price for nothing extra)

the marriage details I gave you by PM are what you need (order under only one spouse name, plus quarter, year, district, volume, page)

the certificate will tell you the spouse's ages, occupations, father's names and occupations, and marital statuses, all assuming that they stated them correctly of course, and that would be enough for you to know whether that Albert was yours, and to identify his wife

on the name ... take a look at your subject line and your first post, and you will see that you spelled the name TerrAnce not TerrEnce (and the birth I am suggesting is TeREnce) and that is what we have been trying to sort out all along ... because when it comes to names, spelling really really does count :-)

How do I find out the marriage date of Albert Bruce and **** so that I can order a copy of the marriage certificate?


JoonieCloonie Report 1 Nov 2015 16:12

Simon I sent you that information by private message yesterday

it is the first item in my message

you don't need the date; you need the "quarter" of the year which is in the info in my message

go to the GRO link I gave you and register, and then follow the steps for ordering the certificate, and you will see the items of info you need to enter

also I was very careful NOT to put the name of the other person here, to protect their privacy (since we do not even know whether this is the right couple), and to send it to you private only, so would you edit your post to delete it?

Sorry folks, I have amended the start of my thread to the correct spelling of 'Terrence' which was on the death certificate of Albert. Apologies.

I've now managed to order a marriage certificate for Albert's second marriage to ******. I'll get that in a couple of days and that should clarify whether I have the correct albert.

Thanks for all the help so far, you have all been great

Thanks, I've managed to finally work it out and order a copy of Albert's marriage certificate to **** and hopefully when I get it next week, it may clarify a few things.

Thanks for your help, I'm so grateful. My mum had done years of research and also myself without much success.

I'll keep you updated and see if we can track down Terrence who is my only link to my grandfather (Albert).

thanks again
Simon, Aberdeen

Once again, Simon, would you edit your three messages on this page to remove the name of the other spouse in the marriage? which you have now repeated twice after I first mentioned this ... she may end up being unrelated and the speculation here would be unfair on her, if so.

use the 'Edit' link at the top of each message and just delete the name.

if we turn out to have the right marriage then we have identified Terence and it 'just' becomes a matter of finding him :-)


Simon Report 1 Nov 2015 18:08

Apologies, I didn't see your latest messages as they appear to have gone into page number 2 in the post. I've hopefully amended as requested. let me know if its now okay


JoonieCloonie Report 1 Nov 2015 19:15

good old page 2, which many people never find :-)

that works, keep us posted


Simon Report 1 Nov 2015 19:41

will do, thanks again

Simon advises by PM that the marriage in question was indeed his man, but it's a wee bit confusing still. We are working on trying to figure it all out!


Simon Report 13 Nov 2015 11:58

Hello folks. Just an update that I have now tracked down Terence and found out more information about my grandfather.

Thanks for all the prompt, helpful work that you all have done for me.

Great success, thanks
