    Married by Licence

    I have been interested to read the threads about marriage by certificate, license etc. My grandparents were married by license and I wondered if these documents would still exist and if so how would I go about getting a copy?

    Many thanks for any help

    I think it is unlikely (but not impossible) that the church concerned still has a copy of the licence. If they married in a register office I doubt you would be allowed to see the licence anyway.

    I have seen some old ones (pre-registration) in church records, usually as part of the BTs. They don't tell you as much as you might hope they would!

      Thank you for your reply. They were married in a CofE church. Would I need to contact the church to establish whether the licence existed or not or could it be held somewhere else?
