Kerry Report 7 Dec 2012 22:01

Can anyone tell me how I can get full birth certificates up please? I can only get up where it has loads of people on and the vol number. I see people putting loads of info on like mother, father, ages, who lived in the house but I can't find them. Can anyone help please I would really appreciate it. Thanks Kerry.

If you care to post the details of the person you are looking for, then people on here may be able to help.

the Volume and page numbers will be a same for a number of people.

The best place to order any BMD cert is from GRO at a cost of £9.25 each. You can't view them on line.

You can't view birth certificates details online,what you get is entry index reference details,,Vol-Page,,,,,these are useful and are quoted should you want to order a certificate online.

What you may have seen is possibly from parish baptism/marriage/death records and or census ?.
