    Default Children born into military family

    Is it possible to find out about children born to military families on this site? I have found a birth on Find My Past that I would like to follow up but unfortunately the GRO references that they give are not those that appear on the GRO site that their records usually like to. I guess what I'm asking is there a separate section of the GRO that just deals with the military? Any ideas would be of great help. Thank you

    The GRO has separate registers dealing with overseas births, marriages and deaths including children of military personal. If you go to their site and look at "most customers want to know" it will tell you all about them, and that you can order them - although you may find it easier to give them a call if the information you have doesn't fit their order form.
