Ta for the photo and map Mr D.
At the time of their marriage they were living in Farndale Road and Hampstead Road which are both still there and surprisingly so are the houses.
According to the wedding certificate his father was a Check Weighman, which
I assume is assosciated with the coal industry, and her father was a Foreman with the Gas Co.
Now I need to find the next generation up.

Edit:
noun, plural checkweighmen. A representative elected by coal miners to check the findings of the mine owner's weighman where miners are paid by the weight of coal mined.
