I'm hoping for some general guidance on this query. How would I best approach looking for a divorce records from the period mentioned above. Here is my scenario.
A member of the family has been married twice. Once in 1945 and then again in 1965. She and her second husband stayed married till they both passed away. The family myth is that the first marriage was a violent one and ended in separation. The second marriage couldn't have come to pass until the first one was annulled.
How / where would I begin to solve this? All I have is both of the marriage certificates.
All records are in Croydon, London.
