Searches of the indexes

If you provide accurate details of a register entry, but we can't find the record, Register Office staff will search over a 5 year period.

If a wider search is required you will need to pay to undertake a general search of the indexes.

A general search must take place in a single session and last no more than six hours.

For information on fees and to make an appointment, call 0151 606 2020.

Information about general searches is also included within the application forms for copy certificates.
