GRO--ordering historic marriage certificates.........
« on: Saturday 10 February 18 23:43 GMT (UK) »
Hello,

I have searched the official GRO website but have not been able to discover how to order marriage certificates. I have the full reference details and the year was 1890.

I do not live in the UK.

Could someone please provide details of the procedure required.

Hi

Once you have logged in to the site https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/default.asp on the right hand side there is a menu , click on "place an order" and then fill in the application form.

good luck
Bee

Thank you so much Bee, and for such a quick response too!

It is all so easy once you know how.  ;D

Minniehaha, you will have found the reference on a different site, FreeBMD for instance as, unfortunately,  GRO doesn't list marriages like it does births and deaths.  I hope it will in the future if only so we can buy pdf copies of marriage certs cheaper than we have to pay at the moment.
