Researching your family history

Tracing family history can be rewarding but can be complicated

The Leicestershire Register Office receives enquiries from all over the world and whilst we cannot always provide the answers, it is our aim to help you as much as possible.

At the Leicestershire Register Office, we hold original deposited registers for births, deaths and marriages that have taken place in the County since 1st July 1837 when civil registration began.

Over the years, there have been numerous boundary changes resulting in the records for some locations being held at this office.
