Marriages outside England, Wales Scotland, and Ireland
Empire and island weddings bring their own anomolies
Marriages were recorded separately in the Isle of Mann and each of the Channel Islands. The first port of call for marriages of British subjects outside the British Isles is the Family Records Centre, which holds details of those recorded by British consuls abroad from 1 July 1849; marriages of soldiers recorded by regimental chaplains (including regimental marriages away from this country) from 1761 and marriages in the Ionian Islands, 1818-1864. These indexes are also available on a pay-to-view site, www.1837online. com. Marriages of the British in India until Independence (1947) are at the India Office Library.
