    Quick Question on BMD surname searches

    I probably should know but this is the first time I've had the misfortune to come across this.

    A relative of mine, Muriel, married in the 1Q of 1916 and was a widow in August 1918 leaving her with a 1 yr old daughter. Now according to my father's hand written tree she remarried but bless him - all he wrote was the chap's christian name and no date - (a small improvement on 3 children in Zululand though).

    When I search for her remarriage do I look under her maiden name Cozens/Cosens or her widowed named Foxon?

    Many thanks

    Search using her widowed name.

      Thanks Elaine. I didn't want to go spending hours looking in the wrong place - it is a tedious task at the best of time!

        Was the groom's name Stanley?

          Hi Merry

          I'll have to check when I get home - but that does vaguely ring a bell.

            Hi Merry

            Yes it's Stanley and it appears that there was a son Malcolm who died in 1942(but no date of birth!)

              The marriage (under Foxon) and the birth of Malcolm are both on FreeBMD. I saw them earlier........I've forgotten the dates now.....1924 for the marriage and 1926 or 1928 for the birth - from memory.

              The mmn was Cozens for the birth reg.
