Am looking for any information on Charles George Godfrey born in 1866 in Reading, Berkshire. He married Ada Maria Pepler in 1886 but also had a second wife.

Would like some information on the second wife.

According to FREEBMD the marriage was registered in the June 1/4 of 1888 between Charles George GODFREY(Reading 2c 669)and Ada Maria Pepler(Reading 2c 669)

There is also a marriage registered in the March 1/4 1892 between
GODFREY Charles George (Camberwell 1d 946)
and either Emily Hallett (Camberwell 1d 946)
or Louise Maria Butt (Camberwell 1d 946)

You could order a copy marriage certificate on-line, quoting
March 1/4 1892, Camberwell 1d 946 to find out which woman became the second Mrs Godfrey.

Good luck..............

Many thanks for the info. Will delve a bit further.According to my tree Ada and Charles married on 3 April 1888. They had 5 children and Ada died on July 4 1907. It was after this that Charles remarried.

That tallies - the registration is not too long after.

Have you checked 1911 census for second wife?
Is it going to be in England, do you have a possible county where the second marriage happened?

Almost 100% coverage on FREEBMD perhaps you can spot it there or you might find it on findmypast.com, free search engine, and you can buy a few credits to view.
Good luck.....

I haven't checked the 1911 census for the second wife. What is the best site to do this from?
I would think that Charles Godfrey would have been married again in Reading, Berkshire as this is where he spent most of his married life with Ada.
Many thanks
