New Faculty Rules come into effect on the 1st April 2020. Guidance will be published to DACs, Registrars, Archdeacons and Chancellors in January. We will be issuing some guidance early in the New Year on the changes and how these will affect those involved in faculties, especially in the parishes.

The Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration etc) Act 2019 came into force earlier this year.  It has three main provisions: first, the extension of civil partnerships to couples not of the same sex; second, to allow for the mother’s name to be entered on marriage certificates and registers; and third, to provide for electronic registration of all marriages in England and Wales.
