Records History

On the 15 November, 1865 Grenada created an Act for registering Births, Deaths, Baptisms, Marriages and Burials. It was created to ensure a complete Register of Births, Deaths, Baptisms, Marriages, and Burials of all the people on the Island. It became the responsibility of the Registrar-General and District Registrars for the parishes, to once every year, make a duplicate and general abstract from the Register books, of the number of births, deaths, baptisms, marriages, and burials registered during the year preceding and the Registrar-General would also, make and keep tabular alphabetical indexes from the schedules.

It is also the Registrar-General role, at the public expense, to ensure a sufficient number of register-books, duplicates, necessary for each rector and curate of the district and ensure that they should be of durable materials. The rector or curate of every parish, and every other recognised minister of religion on the Island, shall make out and deliver to the Registrar-General a true return in duplicate certified by him of the number of baptisms, marriages, and burials in the register-book kept by him. Further any person who willfully destroyed or caused to be destroyed any register-book would be guilty of felony.

Finally it is the the Registrar-General and District Registrars reasonability to allow searches to be made of any register, book, or certified returns in their respective keeping, and to give certified copies of any entry or entries in the same.

Finding A Record

It is very important to note that along with these civil registers you WILL have to search the Grenada Church Records in order to discover the name of the child since the name is NOT generally entered onto the Civil Register.

It is also very important to note that, at present, neither the church register-indexes nor the 32 church registers have been indexed or digitized on the FamilySearch IGI.
