GENERAL REGISTRY OFFICE INDEXES
I'm pleased to anounce that the GRO indexes for:
Births, Marriages & Deaths
England, Scotland & Wales
from July 1837 - 2014 have been completed for the surnames:
GRONOW, GRONNOW & GORONWY
(with thanks to the support of Keith Jackson & Emma Harringway)
The General Registry Office was founded in 1836 by the Births and Deaths Registration Act of 1836.
Every three months, (starting from July 1837) at the end of March, June, September and December, the Superintendent Registrars send a copy of each entry of birth, marriage, and death registered by their office in that quarter, to the Registrar General in London. From these returns the General Register Office produced indexes to its records which are open to public inspection and the indexes can be used to order birth, marriage and death certificates.( Registration of Births, Marriages and Deaths in Scotland began on 1st January 1855. and are held at the General Register Office in Edinburgh).
