If the event took place in the Dudley Borough you can apply to us for a certificate. We hold registers for births, marriages, civil partnerships and deaths that occurred from 1st July 1837 to the present day. For events that took place elsewhere you will need to apply to the relevant register office.
Please complete the online application form. This service requires an online payment. After you submit your form you will be taken to our secure payment facility to pay for the requested service.
You should read the fees and services information below before starting your on-line application to enable you to decide which service you require. We offer a standard 5 day service and a priority same-day service. For added security and peace of mind, we post all our certificates by Royal Mail 'signed for 1st class' service. Royal Mail aims to deliver the next working day, but this is not guaranteed and deliveries can take longer.
We have also included links to the General Register Office in Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
The centres below provide free public access to a complete set of the GRO Indexes in microfiche format. As well as the Birth, Marriage and Death indexes for the whole of England and Wales, indexes are available for recent events, the Adopted Children's Register, Civil Partnerships and events which have been registered overseas.
A full set of the indexes, can be found at:
Birmingham Central Library

Plymouth Central Library
The British Library
The London Metropolitan Archives
It should be noted that it is not possible to obtain a certificate at any of the locations listed above although some offices may provide internet access to the GRO online ordering service.
