Obtaining the marriage certificate enabled us to guess at Edith's birth year, and together with her fathers full name we searched for her birth certificate. Within a few weeks we had found the reference and obtained our copy.
We now had the names of my mothers parents, and where they lived when Edith was born. But we also had a problem.
The birth certificate showed Edith's father to be William Richard Bullock, yet her wedding certificate showed her father to be William Henry Bullock?
Which was correct?
