Arden Births in England
Since 1837, all Births, Marriages and Deaths that occur in Britain must be registered with the Registrar General, generally through Registrars in the different Registration Districts.
Registrars are required to submit a Return to the Registrar General every three months.These Returns for England and Wales have (mostly) been scanned and transcribed by volunteers, and the records are available at no charge. Using the information from that WebSite, Official Birth, Marriage and Death Certificates may be ordered from the Registrar General's office at a nominal charge. The WebSite explains how. Sometimes the Certificates hold more infrmtion, such as addresses and the names of witnesses, etc.
The births of ARDENs in England and Wales have been collected from those records
The Scottish records are also available for free, from here.
A large number of BMD records were destroyed by fire during the Irish Easter Rising.
