|for England and Wales|
Civil Registration of births, deaths and marriages began in England and Wales in the 3rd
quarter of 1837 but was not required until 1875. These records have been indexed and the
index for each year is divided into quarters (1Q=Jan-Mar, 2Q=Apr-Jun, 3Q=Jul-Sep,
4Q=Oct-Dec). These indices are essential for pinpointing the year and quarter before
sending for certificates.
All LDS Family History Centres have complete sets of microfilmed indexes for the period from 3Q 1837 to 1903 (1906 for births). Subsequent years are recorded on fiche and are added to the collections of each centre as the users order them so availability is spotty.
All indexes contain the registration district and the St Catherine's House district code and volume number.
