      There are only two other names (John Ellis and Ann Jones) on the registration. My guess is that Thomas Fenn should also be there!

      I arrived on your site purely by accident! My grandfather was Thomas Henry Fenn ; I've got a marriage certificate for Arthur Humphrey Fenn [married Margaret Williams on 17th February 1897] William Lawrence died September 1887. I hope this is of interest to you. I think you have more information on my Taid's side than I have!
