Order marriage certificates

You can buy copies of marriage certificates for marriages registered in East Sussex, excluding Brighton & Hove.

Church registers are deposited with us once they are full. While the register is still open you will need to apply to the church you married at for a certificate.

If your certificate order is urgent, we recommend using our ‘Next Day Service’ as detailed below.
