Your questions: Investigating my family history, I came across 36 weddings all conducted on Christmas Day 1890 in St John’s, Hoxton, London. The register was signed by the vicar, the Revd Mr Cooke, on all occasions. Did the Victorians have a different (shorter) marriage service? How did he fit them all in?
