English Birth, Marriage and Death Index

The English Birth, Marriage and Death index is gradually being transcribed, and is available on line. This is a project to transcribe the index of all births, marriages and deaths in England (including Wales but not Scotland or Ireland). At present the project is concentrating on the 1980's, with most years prior to this already completed.

If you would like to transcribe records for this site, let me know and I can soon give you some to do as I am one of the Co-Ordinators for it.


English Census Records

In addition to the English Birth, Marriage and Death index described above, the same group is working on the English census (which includes Scotland, and Wales, but not Ireland) for five of the six census's that have taken place between 1841 and 1891 (1881 is not included as it has already been done by the LDS, and is available to everyone). Although records on this site are very limited at the present time, what has been completed is searchable.
