All dioceses have a Diocesan Registry which offers legal advice on aspects of ecclesiastical law that Church leaders are likely to come across in parish and diocesan roles.
The Registrar in the Diocese of Guildford is Howard Deller and a dedicated external website is available offering helpful advice, as well as the place where parishes can monitor the progress of their Petitions for Faculties online.
There you will find information on:
Marriage – including the circumstances and processes where a marriage licence may be required
It is always best to ask for advice from the Registry sooner rather than later to ensure matters start on the right footing.
