I'm trying to find a marriage between a male Goulson & female Milnes, freebmd has children born 1925 and 1934 but no record of the marriage. I can't be sure of what the forenames would be (I'm pretty sure I have found two children via electoral rolls and would like to contact them, only thing is i'm not sure where/if they are part of my tree).

Can anyone find the Goulson/Milnes marriage and let me know the names please?

sounds like the one Elaine thanks. Just checked the freereg scan and it is a typed marriage entry (the later births are Goulson entries, maybe a typo in the GRO marriage index?)

No likely birth in the name Charles Goulson/Gulson/Golson, the only one that matches timewise for a 1921 marriage is Charles Job, born in 1889 and I know it's not him. Tried a middle name search with all the variants of the surname and nothing coming up either.

Maybe not yours but the deaths for the Golson/Milnes couple are-

Spelling now Goulson

Thanks Herky.

Looks like the son was born after the father died, still no likely birth registration for Charles c 1895.

Is there a matching child anywhere in 1901 or 1911? Just wonder where he was born and possible parents, I don't want to go sending off a letter to someone in their 70's-80's and find i'm blundering into a family with tragic stories that isn't even mine.

please Elaine, just found him indexed as Golson in 1911, aged 16 in Keighley.

Looks like it may not be part of my tree after all but Joseph and Ellen certainly jump out from the 1901.

Deaths Mar 1916 (>99%)
Goulson Mitchell 51

Marriages Dec 1886
GOLSON Mitchell Keighley 9a 323

Heaven knows who they really are now? Mitchell swaps between the spellings constantly.

The sons born in the 1920's and 1930's use Goulson throughout the bmd and electoral rolls,

Charles appears as Golson in 1911 and Goulson in 1901, no birth reg in either name.

Looks like the matching record, seems the family didn't know which way their name should be recorded. I do have some Goulson family in the same reg district from the 1860's onwards but it seems they aren't connected. I went through 30+ phone directories in the library too using the 2008-9 Electoral roll results, the only match being the two sons born to the marriage in my initial post.
