PERSONS intending to be married in duly

Registered Wesleyan Chapels, will find, in Section II., pages 125-131, the necessary directions for their guidance in this matter.

[merged small][ocr errors][merged small]

1.-OF REGISTERING THE CHAPEL. BEFORE a Marriage can be solemnized in a Chapel, the Chapel must be duly Registered for that purpose by the Registrar-General of Births, Deaths, and Marriages. (6 & 7 W. IV. c. 85, s. 18.) No Wesleyan Chapel can be Registered unless it be,

1. A Separate Building.
2. Certified according to Law as a place of Religious

Worship. 1. It must be a Separate Building. It need not be a detached building ; but must be a building separately used for Public Religious Worship, and not merely part of another building, as a room in a house or the like; but it may be also used as a Sunday-School, and for the other purposes for which Wesleyan Chapels are usually used.

2. It must be Certified according to Law, as a place of Religious Worship. Unless it be clearly ascertained that the place has been so certified, it will be prudent to Certify it under Statute 52 Geo. III. c. 155, before applying to the RegistrarGeneral to Register the Chapel.

3. The Chapel must be Registered for Marriages by the Registrar-General. The mode of obtaining such Registration is as follows:

Any Trustee or Proprietor of such a Separate Certified Chapel may apply to the Superintendent-Registrar of the Registration District in which the Chapel is situate; and the Superintendent-Registrar will deliver to him two forms of a Certificate, (both alike,) each to be signed by twenty householders at

* The following Directions relate to the Solemnization of Marriages in WESLEYAN CHAPELS ONLY, and not to any other Building or Place whatsoever.
