Hello there,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Please note, I am just a moderator for this category, I can only try and find experts to help, I can't answer the question itself.

Thank you!

It might help if I tell you that I found out about the second marriage from my grandfather's army records. The first marriage was in a church in 1887 and the second in a register office in 1889.

Hi there,

You are not imagining it, they did marry twice. I have checked the original index, it is not a transcription error. 1897 Elizabeth married as Lizzie, 1899 as Elizabeth. I cannot think of a reason why you would marry the same person twice. The original certificates may give a clue.

Both marriages were registered under civil registration.

Maybe the first marriage record was lost and turned up later !!!!

I have the certificate for the first marriage.
