Recording of marriages

Area meeting responsibilities

Report to area meetings

When the marriage has been solemnised and duly registered (see 16.61) the registering officer shall report it to the area meeting (form H). The area meeting shall record by minute the receipt of such report with particulars of the membership of the couple, and the date and registration of the marriage.

In cases where either of the couple is a member of an area meeting other than the one under the auspices of which the marriage has taken place, the registering officer of the area meeting responsible for the marriage shall report it to the clerk of each such area meeting, which shall similarly record the particulars of the marriage by minute.
