They charge £5 for a full certificate or £3 for a short certificate and there is an additional search fee of £5.

If you are in Guernsey, this charge can be alleviated as there is public access to the Strong Room between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. for a nominal £1 charge and details can be copied from their records.

The Priaulx Library also have the indexes on microfilm.

Note: Guernsey Marriages were not subject to Civil Registration until 1919 - so the coverage is incomplete prior to that date. Use the Parish Registers (Gap 1875-1907) instead.
