GRO PDF Pilot Extended – Again!


The General Register Office (GRO) has been piloting a service in England & Wales providing PDF copies of historical birth and death records.

The pilot, originally extended to July 2018, has now been extended further to continue to assess longer term demand and there is no planned end date at this time.

The GRO say further communications will be provided in due course.

Applications for PDF’s cost £6, must be made online and include a GRO index reference. England and Wales records available in this extended pilot include:

  • Births: 1837 –1917
  • Deaths: 1837 –1957
