In a blog posting Audrey Collins, the go to person for genealogical records at TNA, writes on Armed forces birth, marriage and death records.
Those aren't the only BMD records held at Kew. Audrey lists:
- Nonconformist and non-parochial registers, mainly from the 18th and early 19th centuries, handed in to the Registrar General of England and Wales.
- Registers from British consulates, legations and embassies, found among the records of the Foreign Office.
- Records of births and deaths on merchant vessels at sea, reported to the Board of Trade.
- Records created or collected by the various armed services.
