Worth noting I suppose that this change only applies to England and Wales - marriage certs in Scotland and Northern Ireland already included mothers' names.

One interesting thing that I didn't realise about this change is that it will also seemingly allow for step-parents' details to be recorded as well as or instead of natural parents'. E.g.

Quote
"Couples will have the option to include up to 4x parents in the schedule and subsequently their marriage certificate i.e. Mother, Father, Step Mother and Stepfather."

Aren't the future genealogists lucky with the information!
