“On 1 July 1837 a civil registration system for births, marriages and deaths was introduced in England and Wales. Registration was undertaken by civil registrars who reported to the Registrar General at the General Register Office (GRO) in London, now part of the Office for National Statistics (ONS). Copies of anyone’s birth, marriage or death certificates can be obtained by the public. They are vital to family historians because of the genealogical information that they include.” (Mark D. Herber, Ancestral Trails, Genealogical Publishing Company, Inc., 1998) for more click here
