Having a quick look at deaths of Anne Groves (and extrapolating whose widow she was) I think she was the wife of another hatter, James Henry Groves, who died in 1918.

Thanks a million Detective Spurious. Annie and John Groves turn up as witnesses to James marriage in 1876. He married Catherine Saunderson daughter of Frederick Saunderson (occupation Hatter) !!!
Loads of gaps being filled in tonight

Sanderson, and Son, coach & cab builders, 34 Dominick street, lower, and 20 Dorset street, upper

Hardly a coincidence.

The link below is possibly my Greatgrandfather too, entry 31 on page 3.
It's still difficult to figure out his birthplace and previous ship.

I have found embassies to be very helpful in terms of pointing me in the right direction for other countries.
There must be a Swedish registry of ships. Just a matter of finding out what it is called and where it is.

No volunteers for Sweden, but there are a couple of Norwegians on Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness who might be able to nudge in the right direction. Worth an email.

Hi there,

Looking for the witnesses here please!

Also, I can't find anything for the bride elsewhere under "Liston" - could it possible be another surname?

William B - whatever the groom's surname is, it's the same.
Bridget Leary?

Try Lister for the bride maybe?

Yep I agree. There would be a report in the newspapers of the accident.

I'm trying to decipher the death record here:
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy....66/4496426.pdf

"caught between motor car and house 80 Dame St due to accidentally skidding of said car". Awful accident.
