Grimshaw of Haslingden
« on: Thursday 16 December 21 15:41 GMT (UK) »
Hello,
I'm looking to find the marriage of Thomas Grimshaw and Hannah King in Haslingden 1872. Freebmd says Hydnburn Register office- 36/75 I'm just wondering if anyone knows if this would be a non-conformist marriage or am I going to have to purchase the certificate?
Many thanks

Have you found any of their childrens' baptisms please. If they were C of E - then it points to a Register Office Wedding (although you never know of course).

The marriage isn't on Lancs On Line Parish Clerk site - nor is it listed under England and Wales Non-Conformist records (BUT that isn't an exhaustive list).

I do think you will need to buy the certificate, unless a Hawk-Eyed Rootschatter finds it. (You could buy it as a Christmas present to yourself - if you've been good, of course!)

Hiya Rosie
do you think Lancashirebmd have mistranscribed their record - I copied and pasted - says Hyndburn on there ..does seem a little strange seeing as the other records are Haslingden ?? and Hyndburn is Accrington area ( I think ...lol )

I don't know the answer to that but I am thinking that marriage locator is more likely to be wrong if any are.

There is this entry which is similar and they were living in Accrington and married in Ebenezer Chapel, Accrington

HANSON   Margaret

Hyndburn Register Office or Registrar Attended   Preston   RM/41/6

Registration districts in S.E. Lancs changed a few times.
 Haslingden registration district was established 1837 and contained Accrington. Local government reorganisation 1974 - Haslingden, Rawtenstall and Bacup formed Rossendale District Council. Accrington, Church, Oswaldtwistle + other places became Hyndburn District Council. The registration district for the area was renamed Hyndburn & Rossendale.
There was a suggestion a decade ago to replace the name Hyndburn District with Accrington because nobody outside the district knows where it is but the plan was shelved.
  Some of my family married in Haslingden in 20th century, registration district on Lancs. BMD is Hyndburn. Births of their children, born in the town of Haslingden, registration district Rawtenstall.

At the time in question though, ie the marriage - Accrington came under Haslingden Registration District.

I am surprised the words 'Hyndburn Register Office or ........' appear on Lancs BMD. It will be confusing for people - I hadn't noticed that before, but just checked my great grandparents who married in an RC Church in Accrington --- and that says Hyndburn Register Office or Registrar attended.

Hence the current area name is being used, even though it wasn't in use then.
