    Abstract

    The timing of marriage in pre-industrial England has received a great deal of attention from historical demographers, but its more recent history has been neglected. One obvious reason for this has been the inaccessibility of the civil registers for the post-1837 period. However, this note suggests that worthwhile research is still possible, using a combination of published statistics and parish registers to reveal the impact of economic fluctuations on family life.
