Replacement Marriage Certificates
All copy marriage certificates we supply are fully certified copies which are
suitable for all official purposes. Some reasons for obtaining a certificate
include an application for marriage, applying for an academic course, applying
for a passport or a driver's licence. One of the most common reasons is that the
original certificate was lost or mislaid.
Replacement marriage certificates do not require a signed release or similar for
the order to be processed. Nor does further documentation (e.g. driver's licence or passport) have to produced.
Generally, there will be no special needs for the order to be completed, beyond the initial supplying of information and payment.
Types of replacement marriage certificates
There is no choice between non certified and certified - all certificates
issued are certified. All certificates issued are issued with an official seal,
some certificates have a raised seal or a stamped seal.
We can supply marriage certificates from the United Kingdom (UK) of Great
Britain (GB) England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales, and many overseas
births where the location was once a British territory, or if the event was
registered with a British consulate.
The marriage certificate also gives their addresses at the time of marriage, their fathers'
forenames and surnames (or "deceased" where applicable), as well as their fathers' professions.
Underneath there's information on where the marriage took place, the names of the witnesses and
who officiated, who will often be relatives, giving more information to the overall family history.
Where you have the precise ages of the bride and groom, it now becomes much easier to go back and find their
birth certificates. If there's an indication of a previous marriage, you have an entirely new trail to explore for the family tree!
