Barbados Marriage Records
« on: Thursday 05 November 15 12:58 GMT (UK) »
Hi - I am helping a friend with her family tree and we are desperate to find a marriage in Barbados, not too long ago actually, but have tried everywhere and other than phone the registry office up there, cannot find any records.   The marriage details we are looking forward is for:

Richard (*) who married Karen (*) in 1993 Barbados  (that is all we have)

Hope someone can point us in the right direction, many thanks,

Aunty Gene

Hello Auntie Gene,

I was just searching any posts concerning Barbados, wondering whether anyone had found access to Barbadian records. Did you have any luck?

I am curious about a second cousin who married a Barbadian (1968) in Blackpool, Lancashire, and is mentioned in her mother's probate grant (1986) with an address:The Mount Development, Barbados.

Hi AuntyGene,

Marriage records can be searched at the main Register Office in Bridgetown - they are listed in indexes that the public (for a small fee) can access.  However after 1969 marriage records are on a card index to which the public do NOT have access, so an officer at the Register office would have to look for you.  It is possible to contact them by snail mail I believe, but I think the response is quite slow - absolute Stop now!!  as they are only offering the basic service.  There are no online records available for more recent events.

Regards,

Julie

Thank you for that info, I'll probably leave it until the World is hopefully back to business as usual.
