The United Kingdom’s General Register Office (GRO) has added the index of deaths from 1984 to 2019. These cover England and Wales records only.


It is recommended that you go to the FAQs before ordering:

This also includes the pricing and explains the GRO indexing reference numbers.


Go to: Click on order records online.  You must be registered with email address and password to proceed. The next window asks what you want to do  and click on the GRO Indexes. That will open asking if you want birth or death indexes and then fill out the form for whom you are looking for.


Note: birth records are available only through 1918 due to the 100 privacy requirement.


Thank you to Jeanette Rosenberg, JGS United Kingdom for informing us about the death index update.
