Birth, Marriage Death Records (Civil Registration)

Since 1837 Births, Marriages and Deaths (BMD) in England and Wales have been kept on a Civil Registration. Each event is indexed with a surname, year, quarter, volume, page number, firstname, middlenames and/or initials.

There are now many online resources offering the Complete Civil Registration indexes of births, marriages and deaths for England and Wales from 1837 to 2001. However you can search a partial database of Births, Marriages and Deaths for free using FreeBMD.

Alternatively, you can try the 'pay-per-view' website Findmypast.com or the 'subscription-based' websites such as Ancestry.co.uk.

The birth, marriage, and death indexes can be used to order birth, marriage and death certificates from the General Records Office (GRO) at http://www.col.statistics.gov.uk/.
