    I have a couple marrying in Merthyr Tydfil RD, his Army records say St Margaret's ... But they forgot to mention which town that would be :(

    The first child was born in Merthyr Tydfil, and I tried the relevant Genuki page but didn't see a St Margaret. Before I decide to trawl through every town and village (or rather probably decide not to) I thought I'd ask if there is an expert here who just knows. Or maybe a sensible person who can manage to tell me how easy it is to find out :oops:

    Hmm, that doesn't help. There is also a St. Margaret's in Aberdare and that is covered by Merthur Tydfil RD.

    You could try putting the GRO ref. into here and see if it comes up with anything.

    was it the Hawkins or Peadon marriage?

    Do you have a copy of the marriage?

    Would you like a copy?
