Hi edomondsallan,
Many thanks for replying.My grandfather's marriage certificate said he was a widower when he married my grandmother who it was also stated she was a widow. But the thing was, all parties were alive. And indeed my grandfathers 1st wife stated the same when she remarried.I just wondered how they got away with it. No wonder it has taken me many years to search for the truth. It seems our ancesters changed their names to suit, and told a few porkies on the way.
Regards mw1947
