I'm writing up our family history and would like to include copies of the original certificates etc but I'm not sure if I can use them due to copyright laws. Could someone please explain (in plain English) if it's possible. I've tried reading several articles but I couldn't really understand them.

Many thanks

Jenny

Unless you've already done so, please see link below to a document that sets out what you can and can't do with BMD certificates and seems fairly unambiguous?

National Archives. Reproduction of BMD certificates

Section appears to 2.3 deal with your question, if I've understood it correctly?

Hope this is helpful?

Thank you so much for the link. It was clearly written and therefore  understandable.
