Marriage Certificates

The records of Holden births, deaths, and marriages are maintained in the Office of the Town Clerk, starting from 1741 and continuing to the present day.  The Holden Town Clerk issues certified copies of marriage records if the intention was filed in Holden.  If you're uncertain whether your marriage intention is filed in Holden, call the office for confirmation at 508-210-5530 before ordering online. It can also be obtained upon request in person with the payment of a $10.00 fee.  Generally, requests received by 3:00 p.m. will be mailed the same day or the following business day if the order is placed on a holiday or weekend. Payment may be made online by checking account or credit card.

A certified Marriage Certificate copy can also be ordered through the mail using this form.
