Hi Tony
The GRO has a new index for births and deaths and the birth index gives the mother's maiden name. Makes it much easier to find the correct birth registration.
You have to register but it costs nothing.

Thanks crisane - I'd noticed that the format of the GRO website had changed, but hadn't realised that the search facilities had been changed - a massive improvement in my opinion.

Tony. What is your connection to this Gerrard Family. I was helping one of my cousins with this information.

Hi R Snelling.  I have been researching my wife's family tree.  Her maternal grandfather is Albert Henry Gerrard (1889-1966).  Albert's father is the elusive John Gerrard - hence the interest in obtaining John's birth certificate.
