Searchable databases from information provided by the IW Register Office for Civil Registration which commenced in July 1837 in England and Wales.

Note : Prior to July 1837, Parish Registers (which are NOT indexed in this system, and which are held by the County Record Office) were used to record Baptisms, Marriages and Burials.

A useful website which documents the LDS (FamilySearch) holdings (of Baptisms and Marriages) is FamilySearch : A Guide to the British Batches by Steve Archer.

If your search is successful, for a fee you can apply to the IW Register Office for a copy of the Birth, Marriage or Death Certificate.
