Does anyone have access to mariners records, looking for Joseph Hurd sailor on his marriage certificate in 1861, then in 1871 wife down as mariners wife, and I cannot trace Joseph,
Anybody any clues  as where to look. Born 1830.
Thanks SC

It does say there:

It is very difficult to find information about a particular merchant seaman between 1858 and 1917. This is because registration of seamen stopped between 1857 and 1913, and the entries for 1913 to 1917 have not survived.

So you will need to look at crew lists - and for that you need to know the ship! ::)

A good number of Crew Agreements(far from complete) from 1861 until 1913 for vessels registered in England and Wales have been put on line by the "CLIP" project. Available via the pay to view site FindMyPast.

Most 1915 crew agreements are here.

For CA's 1881.
http://www.mun.ca/mha/1881/crews1881.php

you may get lucky. If you do find any vessel/s make another post for details of how to obtain the particular C/A.
