Re: Registry Office wedding 1855
You get loads of marriages in Registry Offices and they marry there for many reasons. They might be of different faiths, not want Banns called in their Parish Church especially if the family might be against the marriage, quicker marriage and saves having to obtain a Licence from the Bishop to marry without Banns in Church, you find bigamous marriages often occur in a Registry Office where the couple would not be known. They might live nearer to the Registry Office than the Church. Not regular church attendees, from out of the place where they normally reside. You find that quite a number of Non-Conformist faiths seem to choose to marry in a Registry Office.
