Hi Sue,

The FreeBMD is only a guide to give you the reference numbers so that you
can order certificates from the GRO. You should also check the Parish
Registers for the places that these marriages might have taken place. Then,
if you can't decide which marriages is the right one, the only alternative
is to order both from the GRO and see which one is right. There will be
more information on the GRO Certificate than is transcribed in FreeBMD.

You can order Certificates from the GRO online at and charge it to a credit
