Find your ancestors in GRO Air Births Indices (1947-1965)

What can these records tell me?

The armed forces records include the registrations of British armed forces (including serving members who were not British nationals) posted overseas. This index also includes some regimental registers and chaplains' returns for army births which took place in the British Isles, for example, at barracks and garrisons.

Both transcripts and images are included in this collection. While the amount of available information will vary record to record, most will include a combination of the following details:

  • First name(s)
  • Last name
  • Birth year and date
  • Place
  • Country
  • Mother's last name
  • Volume and page
  • Record source
