Can I order original documents from Findmypast?

Findmypast’s indexed civil birth, marriage and death records contain the information you need to order a copy of an original certificate from the relevant General Register Office (GRO) or archive. Most repositories offer online ordering services. These certificate ordering services are not connected to Findmypast and should be contacted directly with questions.

To help you find the right place to look, we’ve put together a list of British and Irish offices and archives that offer ordering services for their civil records.
