How can i get a copy of my marriage certificate?
Copy of my marriage certificate
Hi there, I was married in Ocho Rios in 2004.
I need a copy of my marriage certificate.
I lost the original when I moved. What are the steps I need to do to obtain a copy of one and how long will it take?
Do you know the cost?
(I live in Toronto Canada)

I didn't get your name, but thanks for your question.
The Registrar General's Department (RGD) allows you to request another copy online- a refreshing improvement to the old bureaucratic process of the past.
However, in addition to other basic information, you need to ensure you have the following to do so:
- Place of Marriage
- Date of Marriage
- Parties' Names &
- Marriage Officer's Name
Moreover, they will send it to you wherever you are in the world!Here is the link
to make the request.
It is fairly straightforward.
If you forget the marriage officer's, you can use a tool they have to request the marriage officer's name
Hope that helps.
