I note that BMD records currently available on the internet stop at 2005, is there a restriction on the passage of time before information is made public? if so any suggestions on how I can find events after 2005?

Also how and where do I search for Scotish records.

More recent (Post 2005) England and Wales BMD details are available to view at certain main libraries throughout the country. One of which I know is Birmingham and there are about 8 others. Contact to obtain the full list.
