Cer­ti­fi­fi­fi­fifi­cates­fifi are a prod­uct of civil reg­is­tra­tion, but ma­jor life events were still recorded in church parish reg­is­ters even af­ter civil reg­is­tra­tion was in­tro­duced. Now that more and more parish reg­is­ters are com­ing on­line, it is worth check­ing the sub­scrip­tion web­sites (as well as

fam­i­lysearch.org) to see if there is a parish reg­is­ter en­try that may save you the cost of a cer­ti­fi­fi­fi­fi­fifi­cate. This is par­tic­u­larly use­ful for mar­riages, as the de­tails you will fi­fi­fi­fifind in a post-1837 parish reg­is­ter mar­riage en­try will be the same as on a mar­riage cer­ti­fi­fi­fi­fifi­cate. But be aware that a bap­tism en­try is not a record of birth – some bap­tisms hap­pened long af­ter the birth – and al­though buri­als will be close to the date of death, they pro­vide far less in­for­ma­tion than a death cer­ti­fi­fi­fi­fi­fifi­cate.
