A Double Wedding in 1920 Walkley Sheffield - An Update

On 20th March 2012 I posted a blog  - A Double Wedding in 1920 Walkley Sheffield which contained the following photo


At the time I stated

"I could not find any trace of "Bullors" in the 1911 UK census but enter the name "Bullers" and there are quite a few entries inj the Crookes/ Walkley area. But what I can't find are any entries for the marriages in the BMD registers. If her maiden name was Bullors/Bullers then you would expect her father and uncle to have that name but so far I have not been able to trace them "

But today I receive an e-mail from a reader of the blog who stated that the bridegrooms at the wedding were her mothers brothers and that their surname was BULLOSS. Armed with this information it was easy to pinpoint that date of the photograph - Monday 2nd August 1920.

Here are the details
