William Walker (1839-1903)The Register Office holds registers for births, deaths and marriages in our area, Newcastle upon Tyne, from 1837 to the present day. 

Online Search

We are currently unable to offer online searches of births, deaths and marriage records, due to the out of date IT system becoming unreliable. We are working on a suitable alternative which we hope to make available to you soon. In the meantime, you may find these websites helpful: FreeBMD and Find my past.

Staff Search
If you do not know an exact date and place of an event that took place in Newcastle upon Tyne, our staff can search a maximum of 2 years' records. Apply and pay for your search in the normal way here.  If we cannot find the record, we will refund your money.  Please tell us:

  • the event (for example: birth, death, or marriage),
  • first and last names,
  • place, and
  • date range

you want us to search for.      

A General Register Office (GRO) Index reference may help you to narrow down the period that you ask us to search for you, but the GRO Index reference does not help the Register Office in any other way.
