A master index of all the Non-Conformist Baptism records indexed so far, these records are being added to on a regular basis. Use the search box below to find records. Please note that the handwriting, sometimes in Latin, has been a significant challenge! Wherever possible we have used other sources, both primary and secondary to confirm the names, but please use the Index with due caution.
Because we are transcribing so many records, well over 1 million, we cannot transcribe all of the information held in each individual register but we are happy, at no cost or effort, to look up and pass on a copy of the entry to you which will include information that is not displayed in the table. Please just click here to contact us and we promise to get back to you. In many cases the records will be births rather than baptisms and in some cases you will see both a birth and baptism record for the same person.
In column 2 we have listed the denomination (click link for more) of each record set so far indexed as follows:
RC = Roman Catholic
BAP = Baptist
ZBAP = Zion Baptist

UNIT = Unitarian Church

If you identify an entry which you believe relevant to your research but do not have access to the original document please contact us, and we will be happy to provide you with the details.
The database is best searched using a single word, i.e. the surname and the columns can be sorted. For best results select ALL from the Display # Dropdown and then click any of the column headers to sort the records as A-Z and click again for Z-A.
