What corrections can be made
Corrections can only be made when the information in a marriage register is wrong (eg a mistake was made when recording a person’s occupation).
You can’t apply for a correction to show new information if circumstances change after the marriage.
You’ll need to find out if the mistake was made when entering information in the marriage register or just on the marriage certificate. To do this contact:
If the mistake is only on the marriage certificate
If the details in the register are correct, and the mistake was made when copying the details from the register onto the certificate, you can order a new copy of the certificate.
If the mistake is in the original registration
You’ll need to apply to the General Register Office (GRO) to make this correction.
The original information will always be shown in the marriage register. After the correction has been authorised, a note will be added to the margin of the register. This will explain what the correct information is and when the correction was made.
