This page provides a set of links to useful materials on the law of Marriage in the Church of England. The core statutory provisions are found in the Marriage Act of 1949. Whereas it is hoped that these links will be of assistance to those applying the law in this area, each case has its own specific set of facts and so where ambiguities or uncertainties exist it is suggested that assistance may be s- ought from the relevant Diocesan Registrar. Contact details for your Diocesan Registrar can be found at
