The marriage took place after banns according to the forms of the Established Church of Scotland. Gordon Murray MA BD, minister of Greyfriars parish Aberdeen, married the couple. The witnesses were Alex. McGillivray and John Morrison.

William Tawse was a single man, aged 34 years, of Hillocks, Tullynessle and Forbes parish. He was a farmer. Both of his parents were deceased.

Eliza Ann Home was an unmarried woman aged 33 years, of Manse Cottage, also in Tullynessle and Forbes parish. She was a domestic servant. Her father was deceased.

The marriage was registered at Aberdeen on 10 December 1894.

Note: This marriage is indexed under the date 1 January 1894. This is the practice of the GRO Scotland when there is doubt concerning the date of the event recorded. The doubt here arises from the fact that the registrar has actually, inadvertently, written in column 1 "on the Eighty day of December", instead of the "eighth". The previous marriage entry is for the 7 December 1894, and the date of registration of the marriage is 10 December 1894, showing that 8 December 1894 is the most likely date for it to have taken place. 1
