Marriage Records in the UK
A marriage record is any type of record or certificate that states the date and place where two individuals were married. The records are available from 1837 onwards as published by the GRO, and in parish records for years before 1837.
Records are available online, although the information varies depending on where and when the marriage was recorded - for example, you will find more information in a marriage record from 1894, than in a marriage certificate from 1756.
Once you have found the marriage record you need, then you can order a copy of the certificate if it is available.
