Thanks Mull for pointing that out.     I did find a record for a Benjamin R R Jones in Ormeskirk in 1916, do you know if Benjamin Richard Jones also had another Christian name starting with the letter R?

I do know Doris married Maurice Evans an oil industry worker Ellesemere Port/Stanlow about 1950. Then went to live just outside Chester.
Uncle Dick and Antuy Jane were Baptists so marriage may have been in Tabernacle Llandudno.

In 1960s Maurice entered the church and I believe became Rector at Corwen.

Hi Helig and Hugo.

Are you able to help me on this one.
Looking for a marriage about 1950 of Ernest Maurice Evans and Doris (Jones) in Llandudno. Pictures taken outside the church of the wedding party indicates it as Tabernacle.
Doris was daughter of Richard Benjamin and Jane Jones , 8 Howard Place.

Do the archives in Lloyd Street keep records for marriages in Tabernacle ?

Hope you enjoying the good weather and getting on with the gardening. Glad I live on the island and don't have to pay to shift garden waste.
Just it put over the fence here and the sheep and Highlanders clear it for us. How green is that !

Mull, where is the picture of the wedding Party?

I'm not sure if the Archives have the records for the Tabernacle, but I have a friend from the Retirement Group who is a Trustee for the Tabernacle so he may be able to help me

What exactly do you want to know about the marriage, just so I can ask the questions?

By the way was Richard Benjamin Jones a volunteer on the lifeboats, because I've seen a photo of someone with that name in the Archives

We are limited to 6 bags of garden waste at present but quite often I have about 8 so I put the other two on my neighbours driveway, with their permission of course,   I don't know what will happen if we get green wheelie bins because when we used to put the waste in black bins I got a rollocking for that as the bin was too heavy for their machinery

I double checked by using the  wife's  name and came up with the same quarter so its highly likely viz



Surname    First name(s)    Spouse    District    Vol    Page
Marriages Mar 1954   (>99%)
Jones    Doris C    Evans    Conway    8a   289

Thanks for finding the marriage in March 1954, I wonder if the marriage certificate will help.
Meleri Reply 205, Feb 13, shows Doris was not on the 1939 Register for 8 Howard Place. Wonder if she was adopted after that date and how can I find out her mother and fathers names.
Will try and send photo of wedding party when i have dug it out.

Just going on memory without looking through the previous postings, were you hoping to find out whether Doris was adopted or not?
I've just looked at a free birth register for all Doris C Jones born between 1920 and 1937 which is the age group you would expect her to be in but there is no entry for her in N Wales.
I don't think that the marriage certificate would give you any info either and her marriage was in the March quarter of 1954 so it will have been sometime between Jan & March 1954 and that's why I asked Rhuddlan about the local paper the NWWN as Rhuddlan's good at finding things online.

You do have a Liverpool connection in your family and there are only two entries that would appear possible and one is in 1920 and probably too early and this is the other.     Does her age fit in with your Doris?

Wow.
That 1930 date and location  looks interesting.

The Liverpool connection is, I lived in Ripley Avenue, Ford, Liverpool 21 from 1942 until I got married in 1966 and moved to Birkenhead.

My parents married in 1938 and moved into Ripley Avenue which was a new house that year.

Hi Hugo,

Been trying to send photo of thewedding party but no luck.

Windows has messed up my machine and I am having problems being able to scan the photo.
For some reason we have got into employing APPS and although we can reproduce the photo we can not put a ref no or put in to a file.
Never been a problem in the past.
So frustrating. Is it an age thing ?
