Ordering BMDs For England & Wales

Researchers can order birth and death for £6 each for the next three months

Ordering digital copies of certificates is cheaper than ordering print ones

The General Register Office (GRO) is again piloting a scheme where researchers can order birth and death records as a PDF.

From today (12 October), the digital records will be available to order via the GRO website for £6 each for a period of three months.

The PDF scheme provides a cheaper alternative to ordering print certificates, which cost £9.25 each or £23.40 for priority certificates.

Sarah Williams, editor of Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine said, "This new pilot will be welcomed by family historians who will now be able to find out crucial details about births and deaths at a much more affordable price".

GRO, which has run three previous pilot PDF schemes, said the scheme would run for a minimum of three months to allow it to “assess the demand for this service over a prolonged period”.

The scheme applies to birth certificates from 1837 to 1916 and death certificates from 1837 to 1957.
