What is Public Records?

Under UK law, Marriage certificates are known as Public Records which means that any person can apply for a copy of any certificate, providing that they know the details of the Marriage that is required. This can be helpful for both government and legal services needing proof of Marriage, as well as family history (genealogy) researchers looking to discover new ancestors. Please note however that where we believe an application to be connected with an attempt to obtain information for the purposes of identity fraud, the application may be rejected and details passed to the relevant police authority.
