Re: Why a 1911 Registry Office Wedding? #unitedkingdom #general

Michael Sharp

Not all synagogues had a licence from the authorities to certify weddings.

My parent's own wedding in 1952 had to be certified at the local registry office after the synagogue ceremony

The United Synagogue website has a facility to search for the Chief Rabbi's authorisation for their synagogue wedding and the certificate it holds will give details of the synagogue where the ceremony took place and their Hebrew names
