Craig Lloyd started this petition to General Register Office

As a genealogist you need to search and scour hundreds of index records for the correct birth, marriage or death certificate.  This can be very costly with marriage certificates costing £11 and birth and deaths also costing the same but with the option on some dates to have it sent as a PDF for £7. For people with common surnames also it means ordering multiple certificates until you find the right one as the ordering system currently in place is very rigid and limiting. What I propose is making all birth, marriage and death records that are stored mainly on microfilm from 1837 - 1921 (100 year rule) viewable online much like the 1911 and future 1921 Census which is released next year.
