Hope it comes out large enough to read whats in the margin.

dont think it is big enough to read. Shame as it says couple changed their minds at the last minute which explains why it is crossed out. I think it says underneath that they later married at the registry office...

I wonder which one got cold feet. And did they live happily ever after?

I think it does say that. How exciting -and it shows that the marriage cert is often filled in except for the signatures before the ceremony. (I believe legally that once the couple have said their vows in front of witnesses, the marriage is valid).

But I am sure that when we married in the register office they filled it all in afterwards.

They are together in 1901

RG13; Piece: 712; Folio: 87; Page: 21

and have a one-year-old child.

Harry was born in Ireland. Maybe he was a Catholic and couldn't face marrying in the C of E?!! (or the vicar refused him?)
