The state run free website containing the civil birth death and marriage records has confirmed that updates to the site will happen in early 2019.

It reads

“We are pleased to advise that in early 2019, an additional 2 years of records of births, marriages and deaths will be added to the website.  The marriage Index data along with additional images will also be updated for the years 1864-1869 inclusive.

 The years covered by the release of the historic records of Births, Marriages and Deaths after this update will be: 

  • Births: 1864 to 1918 
  • Marriages: 1864* to 1943
  • Deaths: 1878* to 1968

* The General Register Office will continue to work on updating further records of Marriages dating back to 1845 and Deaths dating back to 1864. These will be included in future updates to the records available on the website. 

The General Register Office is dealing with the feedback on the records – where records required correction this will be included in this updated release.  Further details of this release will be confirmed early in 2019..”

Hopefully this will happen soon..
