This is image 2 of 2 regarding the marriage of Henry Levy to Catherine Michaels at the Great Synagogue Dukes Place London. I believe it to be in Aramaic and seek help in its translation into English. Many thanks, David

4/29/2019 4:03 PM This seems to be a page from a registry of weddings.

The top part is for the wedding connected to the Ketuba that you posted.

Underneath the page number is written "Greatshool" followed by a Hebrew date that almost looks like the 29th of Tamuz, although we know that the Ketuba lists the date as the 15th; perhaps the wedding was moved up by two weeks?
The following 3 lines read:
"The groom Tzvi son of Levi the Levite
and his brother Shimon David will be at the wedding
The bride the maiden Chaya daughter of Shimon the Levite"
This is followed, as you can see, by their English names.

The groom Tzvi son of Levi the Levite
