would a marriage in Italy in 1947 have been registered in the UK

would a marriage in Italy in 1947 have been registered in the UK

I am trying to trace details of Herbert Geoffrey Nixon who married an Italian in 1947 in Italy. The marriage certificate gives his details as an officer of 27 years old, born in West Derby to Edith Murray Hendry and Harold Nixon. His wife was issued with a British passport and I assume that this means the marriage was probably registered and recognised in the UK.

Does anyone have any idea where I might find these records or any suggestions as to other places I could look for information?

Many thanks,

You might want to try the Italian Consulate in London. If you have the spouse's name and location, then the British Embassy in Italy at the time may have records. Good luck.

Thanks for your reply.

In fact I have contacted the Consulate in Rome, but they told me they won't give any information out due to confidentiality/privacy (even though both parties are dead).

You say the marriage certificate gives his details as an officer. If this means he was an army, naval officer then his marriage would have been registered with his military authority because he would have been eligible for an allowance for his wife, access to married quarters etc. Why not contact the Regiment?, Army?, Navy? records and they would probably tell you what the drill was.

Thanks for this...I have managed to get copies of the birth and death certificates, but was hoping that if the marriage was registered in the UK I might be able to get some more info.

Thank-you. I have tried the British Consulate who won't divulge information (even though I have an old passport issued by them to the Italian spouse). I hadn't thought of the Italian Consulate though, and I know they moved to the UK after the marriage (although I don't know where).

Thanks for this. I've no idea whether which service he was in, but I will try and see where it takes me.
