    I would like some help as Ancestry has the records for the years 2003-2010 but no image is available.
    I have couple who married 4th q. 1954 in Kerrier, Cornwall. I have not found a death registration for either that looks likely and both could well still be alive - both were born 1933.
    I have only found [on Ancestry]her name listed - she is in Penzance [ source UK, Electoral Registers, 2003-2010] and the birth year 1933-1935. I would like to know who d was resident with her. I can provide her address to someone with access via a Private Message.

    My reason for asking is to attempt to see whether or not they divorced as I have possible re-marriages for both in the 1970's - she in Kerrier, Cornwall in 1971 and he in Rochdale, Lancashire in 1977.

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks Jan. Not sure how good my checking with TNA research guide will be - possibly later today

    I did make contact @patten-walsh who kindly found the necessary details for me. It looks very much like the couple did divorce.

    They had a daughter born in 1956

    It looks very much like:
    She re-married in Kerrier, Cornwall 3rd q. 1971
    He re-married in Rochdale, Lancashire 4th q. 1977

    If I read the guide correctly I won't find details of a divorce on-line
