This information is gathered to facilitate your wish to get married in the Roman Catholic Church.
The Pre-Nuptial Enquiry Form (PNEF) is normally completed by the Parish Priest in your parish of residence. It is his record of his preparation with you and your freedom to marry. The PNEF and supporting documentation (baptism certificate, statement of freedom to marry, marriage preparation certificate etc.) are archived in the place of marriage and retained there for 75 years.
The entry in the Marriage Register is a permanent record. To facilitate the issuing of Marriage certificates. The information will not be used for any other purpose.
