Hatch, Match and Dispatch

The 1837 introduction of records of civil registration in England and Wales changed the way we record key events in our lives. We take an in depth look at the way births, marriages, and deaths have been recorded over time and how these records open a window onto our personal histories. The exhibition will include objects, costume and documents.

Explore this link to the past through our exhibition and accompanying events.
