Mother's Name Will Be Included On Marriage Certificates

In the News

As of today the Home office have amended the Marriage Act so that both the father and mother's name will be added on the marriage certificate instead of just the father.

This is for England and Wales .. apparently the rest of the UK already had this implemented.

Also, you don't need to sign any papers at the registry office anymore..it's all going to be stored electronically now.

I know Scotland does as when I got married almost 6 years ago my husband and I had to put both our parents on the form. I thought it was a standard form for the UK, but apparently not.

I thought this was standard too, as it is in NI ... usually we are way behind the rest of the UK 😀

Nadiaparveen You're so right that putting the mother's name on the marriage certificate is going to be useful to historians going forward. The question is whether they will be able to access the new, digital-only records held by the Registry Office.
