Increased fee for issue of Marriage Certificate

The latest issue of the General Register Office Clergy Newsletter February 2019 was issued recently.

Of particular note to clergy is that the fee for the issue of a Marriage Certificate has been increased to £11.00 with effect from 16 February and that the two-tier fee system for church weddings has been replaced with a single fee regardless of when the Certificate is issued (ie, whether issued at the wedding ceremony itself or afterwards).
