Marriage MatchTM GRO Indexes search facility
The Marriage matchTM is a useful facility available to Familyrelatives.com. Until now it has always been difficult to find the spouse of a family member unless you have the certificate. However Marriage MatchTM allows you to match all those other persons who were married in the same District, on the same quarter, in the same year.
Traditionally there have only been 2 or 3 Marriage Certificates listed on one page at the General Register Office. Therefore Marriage MatchTM finds all the entries that match the same criteria on the page at the GRO that you have just searched. Thereby giving you a much better opportunity of finding the spouse of the person for whom you are looking. In order to use Marriage MatchTM all you need to do is search for the person for which you have the marriage details once you have located the correct person press the icon found next to the image . This will then allow you to view all those people who match the same criteria. The Marriage MatchTM is available for 1866 to 1920 and 1984 to 2005 (although the spouses name is already available on the record).
Please note there is a small charge for this service. The cost for using the Marriage matchTM search facility is 1 unit for pay-per-view members.
