Bedfordshire Baptism Registers

This is a set of near-transcripts of Bedfordshire Baptism Registers, covering the period July 1837 to March 1901. The registers are only of parishes in Bedford Registration District. It contains every Church of England register, and now includes all the non-conformist registers I have been able to access.

These records have been transcribed at Bedfordshire Archives.

Other Baptism Registers

Because some of these registers are small, I have, occasionally, transcribed the whole register. I have put up entries that fall outside the date range of this project as separate pages. Entries on those pages are NOT indexed.

Notes

St Joseph's Roman Catholic  - This Register is written in ecclesiastical Latin. I have attempted to translate the names, but many are ambiguous. Where possible, I have usually used the form in the GRO Birth index, although many names cannot be found. I have attempted to transcribe Latin phrases; however the microfilm was not entirely clear and there may be many errors. The page for this register should NOT be regarded as a near-transcript.
