We provide Official Birth, Death and Marriage certificates to assist you in tracing your English & Welsh ancestry.
The GRO index reference number is needed to apply for a certificate. This reference number includes the name, year, quarter, district, volume and page number.
They can also be viewed on microfilm or microfiche and are available at major libraries, LDS family history centres and family history societies.
Refer to the FAQ’s for information regarding unknown/multiple reference numbers.
Allow 3-4 weeks
You can either choose to have your certificates returned to you by regular post, or by registered mail (see form for price details).
