Because some of the names cannot be transcribed in full, if a search fails, you may find it helpful to try the two partial surname options. Searches may be made across all of the districts or restricted to a single district to limit the number of results if you are looking for a common surname.

You can click on the reference number against any result to see all of the names on the same page in the sequence in which they were recorded. This may help you to recognise a family in which you are interested.

Please note: Searches are limited to 100 results. If you exceed this total, please limit your search to a single Registration District and/or a partial forename.

Please Note: A street index is currently being added. Streets will not appear on all of the search results until this is completed
