North Yorkshire County Council can provide copies of marriage certificates after the ceremony has taken place and copies of historical marriage certificates for family history research. Requests should be made to the registration office or church that issued the certificate, depending on where the records are kept at the time of the request.
When you ask for a copy of a certificate for a marriage that took place in a registration office, the registrar will issue this from the register in their custody. This means you can only obtain copies of certificates from the registration office where the marriage was registered. If the register has been transferred to our Harrogate office, you will need to apply there instead.
The contact details for the registration offices in North Yorkshire can be found below.
Unfortunately, we are unable to issue certificates from other local authority registration offices, so you will need to contact the relevant registration district. Application forms may be used to obtain copies of certificates for marriages that have occurred in other areas and should be sent directly to the relevant registration office.
