BIG UPDATE: 22nd December 2006
All Births, Marriages and Deaths index are now complete!
You can't move for empty sherry glasses as we celebrate - after nine years - the completion of the births, marriages and deaths indexes for England and Wales. You may find that some headings aren't complete on the more recent pages, but we thought it more important to get the data up for the Christmas holidays and put the finishing touches to it later!

Happy Christmas everyone, and good luck in finding your missing Seals!
