*For an outdated but very helpful listing of what parishes are indexed in this collection, see [http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~hughwallis/IGIBatchNumbers.htm http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~hughwallis/IGIBatchNumbers.htm]. 
*[http://www.freebmd.org.uk Birth, Marriage and Death Registration Quarterly Index] - 1837 to present day. The transcriptions are still in progress and are freely available. The website explains the registration process and its chronological implementation.  The website provides access to their images of the index and a double entry checking system for early years of manually compiled quarterly index years before the introduction of typed inddexes as well as the opportunity to correct entries in the database.
*The General Register Office had both a local and national index. Many local Registration offiices historical registrations since 1837 are now computerised by either the registration service or by local community volunteers. Within the FamilySearch wiki in individual parish pages you may find links to local databases such as [http://www.cheshirebmd.org.uk/ Cheshire BMD] and [[Lancashire BMD]], which enable you to search for and print applications direct to the local registration service. These arrangements result in much faster certificate production than application to the national agency.
*[http://www.freecen.org.uk Free Censuses Online] a database of the English and Welsh Census records, 1841 and thereafter every 10 years up to 100 years ago (1911 census). This is still a "work in progress" project.
The above websites are all charitable and rely on volunteer transcribers as can be seen from the websites.
