Reading the article there are some clues that may help in identifying the jilted bride.

" his bride to be, a Newent woman"

" the couple met at a whist drive about 2 years ago"

"The woman was in service at the Vicarage, Upleadon"

" The bride and bridesmaids were dressed and waiting at the bride's sisters house a mile or so away from the church"

" she is on the verge of a nervous breakdown, the bride's mother told an Echo reporter"

I wonder if the marriage register was already "written up" and had to be crossed out, it may be worth a look

The 2 marriages for Upleadon in 1937 have entry numbers 111 ( for April) and 113 ( for November) so my guess is that entry 112 is for Frank Delicate and unknown in May ( date of newspaper article) of that year.
