    It certainly looks like "living"to me. Less common that putting "deceased" where it applies, but still recording the same information. Presumably it would apply to both fathers?

    I think it’s more that there was nothing further to add. Having looked at the whole page and compared letters confirmed my thought that the final letter was a “g”, so the word does seem to be “living” as already suggested.

  5. Thanks Pauline, seeing as you had asked to see it online I thought you would have confirmed what was thought.
    No harm done as they say.

    I have just checked my collection of Irish marriages and now find there is one where 'deceased' is in the same position as 'living'. I hadn't thought to check until now because I assumed (tut) they followed the English tradition of putting deceased in the Occupation column. I now know differently.

    I guess it would have been more helpful if I had! :oops: :)
