"Sep." means "burial" or "buried" (Latin: sepultus, abbreviated to sep.)

So why is this in a marriage register?

Hi there
Thanks for the reply. I have no idea why it's in a marriage register, but I have found quite a lot of it whilst researching on this site - it does seem a bit strange. That's why I couldn't work out what "sep" meant as I knew it wasn't marriage.
