Possible Confusion

There are two marriages in the UK Marriage index for a Lilian M Underwood at Islington in 1923.

The RIGHT one is UK Marriage index 1923. Islington, Oct-Dec, vol 1b, page 550. Underwood, Lilian M and Guest, Thomas J.

The WRONG One is UK Marriage index 1923. Islington, Jan-Mar, vol 1b, page 329. Underwood, Lilian M and **Lacey, Cecil J C. This one is wrong because I have seen the Marriage Register for the marriage at St Georges Church, Tufnel Park, Islington on 3rd February 1923. It relates to a widow named Lilian Mary Underwood whose maiden name was Aldwick
