Abstract: This is the second in a projected series of three papers, the aim of which is the complete description of the closure of any one-parameter inverse semigroup in a locally compact topological inverse semigroup. In it we characterize all one-parameter inverse semigroups. In order to accomplish this, we construct the free one-parameter inverse semigroups and then describe their congruences.
