Online search

Search the Gateshead registers for Births, Marriages and Deaths since 1837.



We have a limited amount of information on births, death, marriages (and civil partnerships) online:

1837 to 1884 1845 to 1862 1837 to 1848
1991 to 1993 1864 to 1866 1850 to 1864
1995 to 2005 1870 to 1896 1866 to 1867
  1991 to 1993 1868 to 1871
  1995 to 2005 1991 to 1993
    1995 to 2005

Unfortunately, we do not have enough staff to undertake extensive searches of our indexes. If you are able to provide accurate details for the event you are interested in (e.g. name and the year of birth, death or marriage) we can carry out a search of the registers for that year and a year either side.

General Search

If a wider search is needed you, or someone acting on your behalf, will need to make an appointment for a general search of our indexes.

There is an £18 fee for a general search giving you 6 hours (maximum) to search the indexes, in person. Legal restrictions mean you cannot search the actual registers.

A copy certificate can be purchased for any entry identified during either type of search.
