Hi all

On the marriage certificate of Thomas Piggott and Charlotte Adams, can anyone please decipher what the name of the second witness is under Charles Styles?

Many thanks :)

Very bad writing or a very strange name= Mg---mbert possibly, surname is also hard to decipher Sle-lerd possibly, might be sheperd.

How about W Groombridge Sexton? Here he is on the 1851 census (https://www.ancestry.co.uk/interactive/8860/SRYHO107_1560_1561-0197?pid=675064&treeid=&personid=&rc=&usePUB=true&_phsrc=iPy316&_phstart=successSource) in Bermondsey at St James Place, Engine House, occupation Sexton of St James Bermondsey (where this marriage took place)

Good call. Flicking back through the register there is a clearer signature on p491, and I think I also saw William Jr as a witness too.
