GRO Army Chaplains Birth Indices

Postby SDV » Tue Mar 31, 2020 2:15 pm

I have discovered an interesting birth in the above index, which can be found on FMP. Does the GRO refer to the General Record Office? And if so can I order a certificate?

The birth I am interested in is registered as BCHA Yr 1827 Page 323 Line 249.

Does anybody know how I go about getting more information?

You can apply for a certificate online in the normal way: https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/cert ... /Login.asp

Once you've logged in, follow the procedure for " overseas events which were registered with the British authorities". Follow the steps below...

In the Start Application screen, underneath "Where was the event registered?" make sure you select the following option:

Outside the United Kingdom and registered by the British Forces, Consul or High Commission (including Forces or Regimental records in the UK, Ireland or other British Isles between 1761-1924, see Overseas records GRO hold)

NOTE: I'm not 100% certain, but I don't think the Overseas certificates are provided in PDF format. The certs probably are sent via Royal Mail.

See this GRO link for more details: https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/cert ... /CG6_1.pdf

As with most places there will be delays due to the Coronavirus crisis.

I confirm MoVidger's advice that the cheaper pdf format is not available for Overseas and Forces certificates.

For general information there is a FIBIS Fibiwiki page Chaplains Returns
