Complete Birth, Marriage & Death records index for England and Wales as published by the GRO.

In database format from 1837 - 2005 (Marriages), 1837 - 2005 (Births) and 1984 - 2005 (Deaths). Images of the original index pages are available between 1983 and 1837. A total of over a quarter of a BILLION events. Service includes full surname, forename and initial indexing to improve accuracy within index searches.

Our unique surname distribution mapping facility will enable you to display a colour-coded printable map of any surname.

SmartSearch is a new way of searching the data for 1984 onwards. It utilises an intelligent search system to perform a reverse look-up:

  • Search for the children born to a couple using the father's surname and mother's maiden name.
  • See the details for either partner in a marriage.
  • Find the birth record from the death record at the click of a button.

Ordering certificates

Certificates for births, marriages or deaths in England or Wales can be ordered online through the GRO. To order a certificate, simply follow the instructions on the GRO website, supplying the necessary data and a GRO Index reference. The full reference is usually a volume and page reference or an 'entry number' for later records, given with the year, quarter and district. This can be found by viewing the full record detail when searching BMD records online. Events from the last 50 years will require you to supply more information at application stage.
