Marriage, religious and civil #unitedkingdom


Pierre HAHN
 

Hi

I have the following information on a religious marriage in Paris France

On 26-Dec-1877 (20 Tevet 5638) at Nazareth Synagogue

Joseph ARBIB, born in Gibraltar and residing in London

Married

? FIELDER, born in London and residing in London.

Now the questions

In France one needs a civil marriage to be “married”, what is the law
in England?

No French civil record yet found. Is there a British civil record to be found?

Thanks for any help.

In England, in 1877, a religious marriage had (and still has) the same
standing as a civil one,. However, it needs to be registered officially
at the General Register Office by attestation >from the presiding cleric.
I've seen copies of affidavits to this effect.
