I am looking for the marriage of an ancestor details as follows
Christina May Vincent Born 1888
Married 1909 Volume number 1B 362.

On the page her married to (Four possible names)
I have checked these out and found two couples!!!

Is there any way I can research further.
I am going to send for a copy of the certificate., but are there any other ideas please??

But this should really have been posted on Find Ancestors Board.

Have you found either couple on 1911 census. Where was she born ?

Really got a problem with this request
No birth listed for Christina May Vincent or marriage in 1909
But there is a marriage for Christina Amy Vincent in 1909 but not on page 362 but 361 and again not found a birth in that name either
