St Michael's Bereavement Support Group 

The January meeting of the Bereavement Support Group was given an entertaining and enlightening talk by Carole Codd a Registrar in Liverpool. Historically it was explained that the registration of marriages dates back to the 1700’s, but the introduction of legal Civil Weddings started on 1st July 1837. Although we all understand the requirements of a church wedding, did you thatto get married in a Cathedral you require a Special licence because it is not a “Parish Church”. She also revealed that Emily Pankhurst was a registrar but she gave it up in her struggle  for votes for women, and this year is 100 years of votes for women. How times change today in St Georges Hall in Liverpool they have introduced a “Prossecco Bar”to add to your occasion. What next?

Our next meeting is on Tuesday 13th February 2-00p.m. at St Michaels.
