Hi Linda,

A good site to look for this type of info is Genuki:

www.genuki.org.uk

Bolton by Bowland and Grindleton PRs are both held at the Lancashire Record Office.

Bolton by Bowland PRs are on the IGI - under West Yorkshire.

Lancashire Records Office have:

Bolton by Bowland

Baptisms 1558-1856
Marriages 1560-1837
Burials 1558-1880


Grindleton
Baptisms 1744-1875
Marriages 1844-1847
Burials 1797-1812

Anyone know where the later registers are?  Lost?  Still at the churches?  In another records office?

I was hoping to look up an 1874 marriage at Bolton by Bowland (found it on lancashirebmd), at Lancs RO, but it looks like they don't have the registers post 1837.

Try this site http://www.lancashirebmd.org.uk/marriages.html
Search under Ribble.  It's not Parish registers.

Also Freebmd
Of course only the cert will give you full information
