 Genealogy - Statutory Records
Date Posted
click to close query
Statutory records began in Scotland in 1855. These are held by the General Register Office for Scotland and encompass births, marriages and deaths.

The GRO website at affords access to these records together with the 1881, 1891 and 1901 Census. Registered users can search for and obtain digital images of these records. Access is charged at £6.00 for 30 credits and limited to 48 hours. Used wisely, you can get five records for your credits, which represents good value.

However, the system is not without its faults and searching can often be difficult. Please share any tips you have for making best use of this on-line facility.
