Unmatched Parish Register Records 1837 - 1920

The following records are held in my files where I have not been able to match them to the appropriate GRO Index entry. One or two of these may help you in your search. They have come from a variety of sources, some may be incorrect, if you can shed any light on any of these please do let me know.

Some of the early entries in particular may well just never have been registered, as this was not unusual until made compulsory later [in 1875].


At present I am not producing a list of unmatched baptisms, due to both the large number of them and the difficulty in identifying the correct entry at times, such as adult baptisms. As I match more, and the number of items falls I may review this, but for now please drop me a line if you don't see the entry you are looking for on the main BMD index pages.
