Overseas Marriages 1761 to 1994
These are our Overseas marriage records from 1761 to 1994. The records are divided in to two categories – army and consular.
The consular records include marriages of British citizens born overseas, whose marriages were registered where the British consul or UK High Commission were notified of the event. The Army records include the marriage registrations of British Armed forces posted overseas.
Once you have found the overseas marriage you are looking for you can order a copy of the marriage certificate from the General Register Office using the volume and page number, the district and the year, which you'll find in our records.
