The GRO is not the only place where civil reg­is­tra­tion is recorded. Lo­cal reg­is­ter of­fices hold the orig­i­nal records from which the GRO gained its copies. Fam­ily his­to­ri­ans have al­ways had the op­tion to or­der his­toric cer­tifi­cates from lo­cal of­fices (the price is £10 as op­posed to the £9.25 that you pay for a GRO cer­tifi­cate) but with­out on­line in­dexes it has been dif­fi­cult to search for pos­si­ble matches. UKBMD is a cen­tral place to search for projects, many run by fam­ily his­tory so­ci­eties in as­so­ci­a­tion with the lo­cal reg­is­ter of­fice, to in­dex th­ese records and put the in­dexes freely on­line. Al­though we’ve put it un­der civil reg­is­tra­tion, this site is also good for track­ing down free parish reg­is­ter web­sites.
