England and Wales BMD indexes
« on: Friday 11 January 19 11:49 GMT (UK) »
My apologies if this has already been discussed, but are there any plans to make the E and W BMD indexes from 2006 onwards available, and if so, when?

Short answer - no :(

GRO is now under the control of HM Passport Office who decided that the recent indices would not be released online.  I suspect if they'd been in charge earlier, they wouldn't have allowed the amount of online access we have now, but even they can't rewrite history :D

The recent indices are still available on fiche at seven (or six?) locations around E&W.  I can't recall where right now, but obviously you'd need to visit in person or find a willing volunteer on RC.

Thank you. I am vaguely intending another visit to the British Library (I am already registered there as a reader) and one to the London Metropolitan Archive, so I will add that to the to-do list for that visit, if/when I ever get round to it.

I'm at the British Library on a regular basis if you need info from the indexes before your next visit.
