Baptism record

19 December 2008

More than 600,000 records of births, baptisms, marriages and burials have been added to the searchable online service at BMDRegisters. These records were previously only viewable on microfilm as the RG 8 series.

Among the extensive collections you can find:

  • Maternity records from the British Lying-in Hospital, Holborn, 1749-1868
  • Registers of burials in the Victoria Park Cemetery, Bunhill Fields Burial Ground, Bethnal Green Protestant Dissenters Burying Ground and many more
  • The archive of the Russian Orthodox Church in London, 1721-1927: these records include births, marriages, deaths and conversions, as well as comprehensive general records on the day-to-day running of the church

 

Marriage and baptism records from the Fleet Prison, covering the period 1667-1777 (RG 7), are also now fully searchable online at BMDRegisters. These include the marriage records of some 800,000 people, the majority of whom were from London and the surrounding counties, with a further 2,400 baptismal records.
