Marriage certificates can't be ordered online from the GRO - only births and deaths.

Yes you can, just click on 'Order a certificate/PDF'

https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/menu.asp

Their current online indexes only cover births and deaths but there are lots of other online sources for the GRO marriage indexes so that you can obtain a reference number.

Yes - Scottish register copies of births have the parents' date and place of marriage.

Added later - the births for Yeates are 1918 and later - copies of the register aren't available online. (The 1918 birth, for James, will be online in January 2019).

Certificates can be ordered  - they cost 12 pounds each.

I'm pretty sure these are not my Yeates but thanks
