British Births in India
« on: Tuesday 25 June 19 11:16 BST (UK) »
Good morning,

I am trying to find a British birth in India around 1880's - individual may have been daughter of a soldier or British civil servants.

Any advice on where the records might be found  would be much appreciated

Thank you

FindMyPast is the best place to look - it has the India Office BMD records.

Other possibilities:
