National Archive Divorce Papers

Hi

I have found that my Gr-Grandfather married once before in 1928 but divorced in 1933. I have asked for an estimate of the price of the papers from the National Archives.

I wanted to know, however, what was included in the papers. Will it all relate to the divorce? How many pages are average? Will I find that only one paragraph relates to my Grandfather, or will it all prove useful?

Thanks

Josh

Hi Josh,

I'm assuming you're talking about divorce papers in the UK, otherwise this won't be any use to you....

I don't know how things might have changed in the years up to 1933, but Ancestry have divorce papers up to 1911, so I put Smith and 1911 into the search boxes and came up with a number of results at this link:

Just have a browse and see what you think. There can be quite a lot of information, including a marriage certificate for the divorcing parties, so it might well be worth the money, depending on how exorbitant it is, of course.
