Local Archives do not hold any BMD certificates.


Just to clarify, I realise that archives do not hold or issue 'certificates' BUT if the marriage was in an Anglican Church the Parish Registers (which are the original source document) will usually (depending on time frame) be held by archives.

As the marriage does not seem to have been in an Anglican church your only option is to order a marriage certificate from the GRO.
For marriages they only have the paper certificate option, they don't do pdfs by email for marriages.

Try this -

https://www.devon.gov.uk/registrationservice/registrationoffices/mid-devon-registration-office

The information you will need - names of bride and groom and 1846 as the year.
Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
Remember - "They'll be found when they want to be found" !!!
If you don't ask the question, you won't get an answer.
He/she who never made a mistake, never made anything.

It may well be on FindMyPast - but if you do want a certificate at the moment I would try ordering from the local registration service rather than GRO. Not all districts are currently offering a service, but Devon seems to be.

https://www.devon.gov.uk/registrationservice/certificates/apply-for-a-copy-certificate

GRO are taking at least 6 weeks for paper certificates, I still have one order outstanding from the 6th April.

A local office supplied a certificate for me a couple of weeks ago within a few days.

Thankyou for your reply Anthony, I have just looked and found a reference to a marriage on Find My Past but dont have an account. Its for Edward HOLE 1846 Tiverton Devon in England and Wales marriages  1837-2005.
The GRO has this as HALL and TOOZE and as my ancestor is HALL i am  hoping this might be a transcription error, I dont want to waste money getting the certificate if this is the case, any ideas or maybe someone on this site could access the record for me please?

Kind regards Telephonist
