    I've just been trying to find a Church marriage having seen it listed in
    Code:
    UK, British Army and Navy Birth, Marriage and Death Records, 1730-1960
    for 1913

    1913 marr..JPG
    Where on it says either absorbed or absolved, can anyone say just what it means please? given the later date. There are several similar ones, I wondered if the Church marriage had been delayed while ships at sea or some such.

    I haven't found the Church record for them yet. :( . 1939 gives her birth date as 1896 when ever other record states 1887.:sceptical: Elizabeth Annie Eve.

    Hmmm, it is in the England and Wales Civil Registration Marriage Index - Apr/May/June quarter.

    The word looks like aborted to me - maybe they got divorced. Is that second year 1918?

    A birth registered at Croydon in the Sept quarter of 1919 (mmn Eve), so probably not.

    I apologise everyone for the delay in reply, had to fix his brekky & then cam a stream of Medical phonecalls & appointment bookings & voluminous paper works for pre-admittance type things.
    The word ofcourse cannot be absolved as the 'l' is in wrong place. :oops:
    Name: Elizabeth A . Eve
    Spouse: J.F. Jupp-D13322
    Birth: abt 1887
    Marriage: 31 May 1913 - St Albans Church St Johns Norwood Surrey
    Vital: 31 May 1913 - St Albans Church St Johns Norwood Surrey
    First up I thought I was viewing related births.
    So, rather odd that 2nd date.

    There's an Elizabeth Annie Eve admitted to Salters Hill School, Lambeth. Her birth date is given as 30/12/1896. Parents Henry and Annie.

    That is she, thanks Sis. :)

    I wonder if the word is 'absorbed', but into what? Naval records?

    I'm thinking 'absorbed' especially when you look at the other entries in post #6.

    If you go back a couple of pages through the records, the word does look like absorbed.

    Have just looked at his service record to see if I could find that second date anywhere on it, but no luck. It does give the marriage date of 31.05.1913, though, so I expect it is just some sort of date for their own records.

    That similar double dating on others does seem to be within a reasonable time frame too doesn't it?

    I'd agree with 'absorbed', but I can't see anything in the OED that quite explains it.

    My best guess is that it's naval jargon relating to when the marriage had been fully entered into the personnel records, and any pension entitlements or contributions had been sorted out.
