Transcription error -Parish Marriages

Could I point out a transcription error for the marriage of
LINDLEY, William (Bachelor, age 20, Cutler, residing at 10 ct 6 house Edward St).
Married Ellen SURINDEN, on October 2, 1887, by J W Talbot (Banns) at
St Luke , Hollis Croft . Father's name is Lewis Lindley (Cutler).
The brides surname should read SWINDEN. Also in 'Spouse match' the brides address is incorrect.
The image and transcript can be found on FMP


Re: Transcription error -Parish Marriages

Hi Ian,

Thanks for letting us know of the error.

Unfortunately I do not have either the original that we would have used or FMP at this time.

If someone with FMP could check it out I would willingly change our entry. I can see from an INDEX I have that Ellen`s surname is SWINDEN not SURINDEN. I need her address.

Morning Guys,

Thanks for the help with sourcing the information.

Turns out I did have it and missed it when I checked.

Sooooo Ellen SWINDEN has be reunited with William Lindley.

Keep the corrections coming folks and then we know our database is as good as it gets.
