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.
Select an option below to see extracts of births, marriages and deaths relating to my Carter Family History. Please note that these birth, death and marriage records have been transcribed and may contain errors. If you find any information missing or incorrect, please contact me using my feedback form.
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.
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/.
