Birth, Marriage, Death Certificates and Records

The Priaulx Library can provide copies of most original birth, marriage, or death (BMD) records of anyone whose life event took place in the Bailiwick of Guernsey. (Our Alderney records, however, are incomplete.) Please consult our downloads page for more specific information.

This can be done on a look-up basis for enquirers who cannot attend the Library, and will include a copy of the record. The information can be researched by the enquirer in person at the Library, in which case the cost will that of a printout of a scan from microfilm. These costs are subject to revision.

Copies of BMD certificates that are required for official purposes, however, can only be obtained from the Guernsey or Alderney Greffe, at a higher cost.
