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:
https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/faq.asp#GROIndexReferences
This also includes the pricing and explains the GRO indexing reference
numbers.

Go to:
https://www.gro.gov.uk. 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.
