Marriage of Marjorie Wilkins to George Frederick Marsh

Marjorie Wilkins was born in 1923, the fourth of the six children of Herbert George Wilkins (1888-1951) and his wife Mary Allan Wilkins nee Kennedy (1889-1967). Herbert was a brother of my grandmother Gertrude Amy Taylor nee Wilkins (1890-1919). Marjorie was a cousin of my father Eric William Taylor (1913-2003).

Marjorie married George Frederick Marsh at All Saints Church, Upper Belvedere on 23 August 1947. This Anglican church is close to 60 Stapley Road, where Marjorie was living with her parents.
