Anyone know if it's possible to get a replacement marriage certificate?

It's a long story but I need to get my passport renewed ASAP so that I can use it for ID purposes. The problem is that my expired passport is in my maiden name and at the moment I can't seem to find our marriage certificate anywhere. I've got a couple of places left to look but it's not very hopeful.

So does anyone know if I can order a replacement certificate and, if so, how do I go about it?

Think you contact the local registry office and ask them, or perhaps the church??

You need to go to the registrar in the district you were married. churches etc have to send their records to the registrar. The only time this may not have happened is if there aren't many weddings at that church and the record of the marriage is still at the church. So first thing is to approach the local registrar and take it from there. IIRC there is a fee payable.

You can get them online from the national statistics office. www.gro.gov.uk Sorry can't do link have stupid keyboard. You do have to pay though.

We needed this recently - a replacement from the Reg office where we married cost us £7.00 and was sent to us within days of applying.

Just click here to order any birth/marriage/death certificate online. A recent marriage certificate costs £11.50.

if you just need ID, a photocard driving licence/provisional driving licence is pretty good

Thanks everyone.

We got married in a small village church just over 5 years ago. We'll try the registrar first I think. Phew!

We need the ID to apply to take some inherited money out of Ireland. Unfortunately they won't take a provisional licence as proof and I can't drive.
