    Default Off topic - post WWII marriage of former RAF airman

    Hi all,
    I know this question is rather for a genealogy forum than for the RAF forum but I hope some experienced members would be able to help me.
    I have located a former WWII RAF airman of Czech origin marriage in September 1963 in England & Wales, Civil Registration Marriage Index, 1916-2005 BUT there are two rows with his name - each time with another wife's name. In Ancestry I have found that the first name of his wife is the same in both cases (and also the same on their grave) so my conclusion is that one should be her maiden name and the second one she has as a widower or after a divorce? Any ideas please?

    TIA

    As you say, I'm guessing she was previously widowed/divorced before this marriage. There may be something in the newspapers at the time of the wedding if it was reported or the engagement announced? I'd be happy search the newspaper archive on FindMyPast if you don't have an FMP account. Just PM the details if you'd like me to have a look.

    Regards
