Does anyone know how I can get date of my parents wedding anniversary, John and Ellen Higgins (Jack and Nellie). I know it was first week in July either 1946 or 47, and likely 47. Mum was nee Morton, born Coffee House 188A Wallgate Wigan in 1923, Dad was born next door in Coffee House Inn in 1925. Moved to Norley Hall (Hodder Close) in 1957 when I was a few week old....

Some times you can find a date of marriage on the 1939 register, unfortunately in this case it does not show , from the info available I would say they were married at St. Josephs RC Church Wigan , the records for 1947 will be held at St. Judes Church so you could make enquiries there , failing that you may have have to purchase a certificate from Wigan Register office , price £11 , you can do this online on wigan council website my account
