This talk by former Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages, John Boon, covers something of the history of civil registration in England and Wales, but focusses mainly on some of the many stories, both light-hearted and sad, from his 35 years working as a Registrar in Plymouth. The Vale (Marriage) Room in Evesham is the perfect venue for this talk.

When not working John has always had an interest in nature, something that has taken him all over the world. He currently runs birdwatching and natural history groups for Evesham U3A. Before coming to Evesham in 2017 he was chair of a charity that owned and managed an historic Victorian cemetery!
