The Motilal Banarsidass translation of Garuda Purana by J.L. Shastri is an unabridged translation and can be downloaded using the link below or from this answer.

Garuda Purana English - Motilal - 3 Volumes in 1 (PDF, 120 MB)

  • 1184 pages

  • Vol. 1 begins at page # 1

  • Vol. 2 begins at page # 429

  • Vol. 3 begins at page # 839

I was also able to find a free copy of an abridged English translation of Garuda Purana by M.N. Dutt (Manmatha Nath Dutt) at two different places:

  1. Google Books++: https://play.google.com/store/books/details?id=0Fwxjf4IM78C

  2. Archive.org: https://archive.org/details/garudapuranam00duttgoog

  3. Proofread HTML: http://www.wisdomlib.org/hinduism/book/the-garuda-purana-dutt

    If you prefer PDF file, it's available via this direct link (32 MB).

++ One advantage with the Google Books format is that it's searchable!

    I think M.N. Dutt's translation is an abridged version. The Motilal Banarsidass translation is a verse-by-verse translation, and I think it's much better. Mar 13, 2016 at 1:46
  • Anil Kumar's answer has the Motilal Banarsidass one: hinduism.stackexchange.com/a/9095/36 Mar 13, 2016 at 1:47
  • Oh ok, I tried clicking on those links in the other answer earlier and none of them seem to work. The page just times out. Maybe we should upload them to archive.org. Mar 13, 2016 at 2:09
  • Yeah, unfortunately the DSpace site is often down. The next time it's up I can download all three volumes and upload them to Google Drive. Mar 13, 2016 at 3:10
  • Indian Scriptures too has Garuda Purana.
