Great news for family historians!
The GRO has extended its Pilot Test of birth & death registrations in PDF format.
The main points are:
1. The service will continue for the foreseeable future - no end date has been announced.
2. Each PDF costs £6.
3. Applications for a PDF must be made online and include the GRO index reference (you can get these from the GRO site or from FreeBMD).
4. The England & Wales registrations which are available as PDFs are:
Births: 1837 – 1916
Deaths: 1837 – 1916
