Births, Deaths and Marriages only started being recorded by the government in 1837 – this is known as Civil Registration. We hold records of most of the births that have occurred in the Rhondda Cynon Taf since that time.

We can only issue copy birth certificates if we hold the register containing the original entry. If not, you must apply to the register office that holds the original record.

Please note: Not all indexes are available online yet.  We are in the process of publishing our indexes as far back as 1837. If you cannot find your record please contact us using the details below.
