Hello and thank you for visiting This site is home to a database of the indexes to births, marriages and deaths which have been registered on the Isle of Man under Civil Registration.

What's available

Only records from Civil Registration can be found here. Compulsory registration of births and deaths started in 1878, much later than in England & Wales. Marriage registration became compulsory in 1884, however there are a large number of entries prior to this in the indices and so these are included.

The index for Island births 1878 - 2010; index for deaths 1878-2011 and marriages up to 1979 are available to search.

Please note: this site is not affiliated with the Isle of Man Civil Registry. If you want to order a certificate, you will need to contact the Registry directly - The Douglas Civil Registry Office, Deemsters Walk, Douglas, Isle of Man, IM1 3AR Telephone: 01624 687039.

Update - September 2013

All birth, marriage and death index entries have now been uploaded. All records are double-keyed for accuracy and where there is a note saying "not cross checked" this means that it's still to have it's second transcription.

I'd like to take the opportunity to thank Allen, who has transcribed many thousands of records, and kept me on my toes keeping everything up to date with pages of transcripts coming in virtually every day. Unfortunately, the years catch up with us all, and Allen has had to retire from the project. But without him, it wouldn't have got as far as it has - so thank you!

Can you help?

All the records in the database have been transcribed by a small number of volunteers. If you can spare a little time to help, please get in touch via the Contact form for further information. Speed isn't a necessity but accuracy is, no special software is needed.
