Recording of marriages

Quaker certificate of marriage

The certificate of marriage is to be used only when the procedure has been followed in accordance with the provisions in this chapter.

It should not be used in other circumstances, as, for instance, at a meeting for worship held in conjunction with a marriage not according to our usage (including a meeting for worship for celebration of a marriage previously solemnised) (16.67). Advice on wording for an alternative form of certificate is available from the Recording Clerk.
