Hello, Louise, and Gavin,

You both asked reasonable questions, but I was sure that the marriage was in Scotland because I had the date and place of marriage on the birth certificate. Birth 1873, marriage 1866; I did not mention the place earlier because this couple married other than in Aberdeenshire.

I did run a search just in the name of VIGROW without a male name and got a list of them, only about 10 in total, the majority in Aberdeenshire, but my record wasnt listed on that occasion.

Here's the reply I have received earlier, but only picked it up just now. The names of the parties are John SAMPLE, Inland Revenue Officer and Margaret Weston VIGROW.

You will see what GRO found, and got a nil return and what they did to find it. I hope that the remedy in this case may help others where you know the record should be there.

Thank you for your email - I have checked for this record and found it
on scotlandspeople - if you put in the male surname as Sample and the
female surname as Vigrow and leave the forenames blank in both cases,
the record does come up - when it shows it says the grooms forename is
John and the bride is M W

But when you put the initials in on the scotlandspeople search it comes
up as a nil return.

I will forward this email also to scotlandspeople to see if they can see
why this happens. In the meantime you can access the record as

I hope this helps.
