Could these be the marriages ?

Marriages Sep 1915 ---------------------------------

Edwards Mary A - Molloy Manchester 8d 507
Molloy Michael - Edwards Manchester 8d 507

Can't find a marriage for Ellen Edwards and William Molloy though.
Are you sure it was Ellen and not Eliza ?

Marriages Sep 1887 ------------------------------------------------

BERRY John Thomas Manchester 8d 340
>>>>>>Edwards Eliza Manchester 8d 340
FITZPATRICK Mary Elizabeth Manchester 8d 340
>>>>>>MELLOY Gilbert William Manchester 8d 340

Seems too big of a gap in years though !

The certificate for Mary A Edwards and Michael Molloy will give you her age on marriage. From that you should be able to work out which of the deaths is hers.
