Superintendent Registrar's Certificate

A Superintendent Registrar’s Certificate is another alternative to having Banns read, and involves the publication of a notice at the civil Register Office of the district where your marrying church is.

You are also required to be resident in that district for at least seven days before you can apply for the Certificate.

The Vicar of the church where you want to marry has the discretion whether or not to accept a Superintendent Registrar's Certificate. If you think that this route is necessary for you, you should speak to your vicar about it in the first instance.
