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 times and how these records open a window onto our personal histories.  The exhibition will include objects, costumes and documents.
