UK, England, Cumberland—Parish Registers, 1590–1960 [Part A] [MQ3Z-QSF]
Can we assume this is a marriage record as they are names of couples with a date?
There is no heading.0
No. Could be dates of final reading of the banns.
Besides that's not a parish register. I don't know what it's supposed to be but it's definitely not a parish register!0
It says it is a parish register and I don't see what else it could be. If it was a final reading of banns, it would show the other dates that the banns were published. I would index it as a marriage.0

I don't know if FamilySearch is running out of projects for volunteers to paricipate in, but these records have been indexed twice already!
It does look likely the image posted at the top shows a transcription of the actual marriage register, but banns and licence records have been indexed (by FamilySearch) so often as if they related to the actual marriage event, it is difficult to be 100% sure without having access to the original register.
The main point is, how can indexers possibly be given records without any heading or indication as to what they relate? This is not the first time I have seen a query like this, where the project leader should at least share some responsibility for the resulting confusion.2
It's a copy of the register. We've seen these typed/printed register copies in another question about this series.0
