Search birth records
Enter a name to search millions of historical records.
We will show you the exact results for the name you searched for.
If you can't find the person you are looking for, try and broaden your search.
Try entering a surname and then a place of birth, leaving the first name blank.
These results show when the birth was registered, not when the person was born. So, someone born in December, might not have their birth registered until January of the following year.
Fully Indexed births
These are indexed birth records for England and Wales. Birth were first recorded in July 1837 and this index ranges from that date
up to 2006. They have been indexed which means it is easy to search for the birth of your relative by simply entering their name and
the year they were born. If you are not sure of the year, you can search up to ten years either side of that year. You can add a place
if there are too many results. We suggest you add either a county or a town, but if you do not get the result you are looking for,
try again leaving these fields blank.
Any births registered after the September quarter of 1911 also include the mother's maiden name.
After 1984 births were recorded individually so no original image is available.
The index has divided the year in to four quarters – January to March, April to June, July to September and October to December. The record you see is the quarter that the birth was registered in, not when it actually occurred.
We have found the birth of Arthur Stanley Jefferson in Ulverston in 1890. He was better known as the actor Stan Laurel.
