CAMDEX: Cambridge country civil registration index online

The local version of the civil registration indexes for births, marriages and deaths is now available for Cambridgeshire on CAMDEX, at https://www.camdex.org.uk/search.cfm.

Local indexes are considered more accurate and complete, and you get a bit more information than in the GRO indexes at FreeBMD and elsewhere. For marriages usually the spouse's name; for deaths the age.

You need to enter at least type of record, surname, year, and range of years up to +/-10. You may also specify first name, location, and exact or soundex search.
