The Registrar General's Department (RGD) is the only repository in Jamaica for birth, marriage, still birth and death records. However it does not register divorces.
RGD’s historical relocation took place in July 1996. It began operations from the new location at Twickenham Park, St. Catherine on August 1, 1996 which houses its corporate office. Since then the RGD has expanded to nine regional offices, the most recent being in May Pen; Clarendon. The RGD became an Executive Agency April 1, 1999 under the Public Sector Modernization Project (PSMP). It was among the first four entities in Jamaica and the English speaking Caribbean to be accorded this status. It is the first executive agency to have been given type C status as at April 2007. This means that its operations are not funded from the consolidated fund but from its revenue intake.
