Researching HAMBRIDGE in England - in English records, how would you know if people are Roman Catholic ?

Question by UVF

My HAMBRIDGE godparents were Roman Catholic, Uncle Roy's parents were married in 1886 in a Catholic Church - St Bridgid's Fitzroy, Melbourne - his father and grandparents were English so have found a lot of information about them in the records, but were they English Catholics ?

Because Catholicism was suppressed in England, I know that marriages before civil registrations started were required by law to be done only in the Church of England to be legal, and all burials were in Church of England churchyards, so how would you know if the people you are researching were Catholic ?
