Have we a Birth, Marriage or Death Certificate that you need?
Are you about to order a certificate for your research?
Before you do, check our database of unwanted certificates, it might save you a fortune!
Some very generous HGS Members have donated their unwanted certificates to the Society, and if we have one you need you can collect it in person, or we can send it to you in return for a small donation to cover the costs of postage and packing.
Simply search the database listing on this page using the search box to input the last name you are interested in – the listing will filter automatically as you type based on the characters you enter. You can select the number of entries to display which is initially set to show ten sets of details. If you find a certificate that you would like to obtain, just make a note of the number in the left hand column and complete the unwanted certificate request form opposite. You can then either collect the certificate(s) in person from the HGS Research Centre in Cosham, or we can post out to you. We suggest a minimum donation of £1 for each certificate, which as you can appreciate is a huge saving on the cost of obtaining an official certificate.
