Applying and searching for Certificates

The indexes have now been updated and all birth, death and marriage indexes from 1837 are accessible online. The indexes do not contain entries for the current year or the year before. Please contact us directly if you wish to apply for a more recent certificate.

To find an entry, you'll need to know the following:

Birth certificates

You must give the year and all or part of the surname. You can narrow the search by providing all or part of the forename. If you're not sure of the year you can try different years.    

Once you've entered the search information, you'll see a list of all entries fitting the search criteria. 

To order a certificate just click on the entry you need and follow the simple online ordering instructions. 

You will also be asked further security questions relating to the entry. If you are unable to answer them, we will be unable to supply the certificate

Marriage certificates

You must give the year and all or part of the surname. You can narrow the search by providing all or part of the forename. If you're not sure of the year you can try searching different years. Once you've entered the search information, you'll see a list of all relevant entries. On the marriages index, there's a facility to view related records. This means you can cross check the names of both the bride and groom. To order a certificate simply click on the entry you want and follow the instructions.

Whilst we hold the records for all marriages that have been registered in North Lincolnshire, there are some churches where registers have not yet been deposited with us and those records will not show up on the indexes. Those churches are: St. Johns in Alkborough, St.Mary's in Garthorpe, St.John's in Whitton and Winteringham Methodist Church.

If the marriage you require may have taken place in any of these churches, please contact us for advice on applying for a certified copy of that entry. There are also some instances where the entry you are applying for may be in a register which is still held by the church. In these cases we will contact you and explain how you should apply for a certified copy from the church.
