My Mam & Dad, George William Crackett & Margaret Jane Webb (George & Peggy) were married on 18 April 1942 at Amble Methodist Church. You can see from the attire that it was a wartime wedding, and the festivities were no doubt a little dampened by the loss of my Dad’s brother Syd just a couple of weeks earlier. The officiating minister at the wedding was great uncle Will (the Rev. William Robinson Turner) brother of my granny Crackett. Shortly after the wedding my Dad went off to serve in India for 3 years and my Mam returned to live with her parents in Radcliffe for the duration of the war.
Looking through Irregular Cross Border Marriages Vol I gave me another 2 Cracket marriages performed on other border crossings.
(This is my catch-up post for Thursday 5th April when I missed my postaday)
Several of my non-conformist relatives were married at the Scottish border to avoid being married in the parish church. This makes it much more tricky to track down marriage records for them. I found 4 Cracket marriages in Vol II of Irregular Cross Border marriages.
