The registers (or films therof) are available at Manchester public libarary
http://www.manchester.gov.uk/info/448/archives_and_local_studies/464/church_register_list/26

http://www.lancashirebmd.org.uk/ gives:
Lancashire Marriage indexes for the years: 1856
Surname Forename(s) Surname Forename(s) Church / Register Office Registers At Reference
DAVENPORT William HARRISON Elizabeth Manchester Cathedral (formerly Manchester Collegiate Church) Manchester CATH/113/190
DEVANPORT William HARRISON Elizabeth Manchester Cathedral (formerly Manchester Collegiate Church) Manchester CATH/113/190
[Evidently, they had difficulty transcribing the local registrar's copy]

Knowing the local ref says you need to check entry # 190, which can be very useful info if you go to check the original registers.

Thanks Reggie, I got the date from the mormon site, but I would like further details e.g fathers and witnesses. It is not on the Lancashire Parish Records, they stop a few years before.

What info are you hoping for?

Reggie

Reggie Report 23 Jan 2013 15:06

They could be on the IGI - which is FREE

Or on the FREE Lancs OPC site

If not on either, you'll need the County Records Office

Where did you get the date info?

Of course, full details will be on the cert................
