What you need to do

  • whether the marriage took place in a Church or the Register Office. If in a church, you will need to state the name of the church.

Civil partnership:

  • the date and place of the partnership registration
  • the name of the couple at the time of the registration.

If we can't issue a certificate

We won't be able to issue a copy certificate if we don't hold the record you're looking for or can't trace it from the information you provide.

  • Please try to provide as much information as possible so that we can try to locate your record.

  • The initial £11 charge for this service is to locate the certificate. This fee is redeemable against the certificate if it is found. If we're unable to find your certificate you won't receive a refund for the £11 as this covers the cost of our search.

  • We'll refund any express payments, postage, and any additional payments you have made on top of the initial £11 fee for any extra copies of the certificate you may have ordered.

  • If we can't issue the certificate we would recommend that you contact The General Register Office (GRO), where the records are held of births, marriages and deaths registered in England and Wales since 1 July 1837.
