Welcome to the General Register Office for England and Wales online ordering service
The General Register Office holds a central copy of all registrations for England and Wales. Local Register Offices also hold records of events registered in their area.
For recent events registered within the last 6 months (for marriages this period is extended to 18 months), applications for certificates should be made to the Register Office in the district where the birth, death or marriage took place.
