Hi,

I agree with Sue, although I think the bride's address could be 5 Duke Street. :-)

Hi Christine

Just looking at that certificate again I'm more inclined to agree Harriet's address is 5 Duke Street. Looking at groom's occupation again "Hawker" the k appears to be the same in Harriet's address - missed that earlier!

Good spot there.

Sue

Hi

You are correct. I would imagine a waste sorter would have been someone who sorted through rags/clothes for a dealer in the clothing trade. Might be wrong, but that's my best bet!
