      (I had date as 25 Aug from FamilySearch, but this it is now clear this was the first reading of the banns)
    Separated Bef 1881 
    • William and Isabell were living separately at the time of the 1881 census (3/4 April) and not found together in subsequent censuses.
      They appear to have separated between 1871 and 1881, probably by 1875 when Isabel seems to have had a son whose father was not William.

    • GRO ref: BEETCH, Alfred Thomas to GILLINGHAM, Florence Isabel q1 1892 Pancras RD 1b 186

      With the bride's name given as Florence Isabel rather than simply Isabel, it is hard to be certain this is the right marriage, not having seen the marriage cert (which should give extra evidence in the form of Isabel's father's name and occupation) and with Isabel dying so soon, and so never being with Alfred in a census where the birth place should have helped.
      However, not only is there no other sign of Isabel, marriage or death, as a Gillingham after the 1891 census, but in addition her name was only given as Isabel when her death was registered (and the age is exactly right in the death registration).
      In addition (and importantly) there was no birth registration of a Florence Isabel Gillingham, nor is there any sign of a Gillingham marrying a Florence Isabel who could have been remarrying as a widow.
      Changing Christian names does seem to have been popular at this time - at least when people were away from home and family and so could get away with it!
