    widowed/ married?

    Just looking at the transcriptions from 1939 and there is a couple whom I believe to be married to each other but the transcript has them both as being widowed? Can anybody take a look at the original for me to see what it says please? Her husband is Robert but it says he is widowed as well..

    On the original, the "M" for married is a bit scrolly and could be interpreted as W, but looking down the whole sheet the lettering is consistent and the Ms clearly differ from the Ws, so I read it that they were both married and not widowed.
