===Ordering Certificates Online===
 +
The [https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/ General Register Office] holds a central copy of all birth, marriage, and death registrations in England. These certificates can be ordered from their [https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/ website] (a login is required but it is free to register and search). To order, the person’s name and surname; the registration year, quarter, and district name; and the volume and page number must be known. To find these, use the civil registration indexes (discussed above). Because the district registrars sent copies of their certificates to the GRO, the certificate received in the mail or by pdf is a photocopy of the copy, not the original. Although accuracy is very high, there were occasional errors made while copying certificates.
