This collection indexes 96,000 marriages for the City of London and Middlesex. This is an on-going project by Cliff Webb working from surviving source records.

Over 50,000 City of London marriages and 46,000 for Middlesex have been indexed. These include 3,100 Jewish marriages from Bevis Marks and the Great Synagogues, 3,160 Roman Catholic marriages, and 862 Huguenot marriages.

Please note that the most of the marriages included in the Index (apart from those of the Great Synagogue) are not, to the best of our knowledge, available anywhere else online.

The source records
The original registers provide much more information than the index.

Microfilm copies of many registers were made by the LDS, and can be ordered from LDS Family History Centres.
