England and Wales: Nonconformist birth, marriage and death records online

Posted by admin on May 21, 2008

The National Archives’ collection of nonconformist birth, marriage and death records from 1567 goes online for the first time.

A new partnership project between The National Archives and S&N Genealogy Supplies means that you can now access images of these records online. BMD Registers provides access to the non-parochial and nonconformist registers 1567-1840 held in RG 4 and RG 5.

The National Archives holds 5,000 registers of a huge variety of nonconformist congregations, including Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians, Protestant Dissenters (known as “Dr Williams Library”) and Independents. There are also registers from a small number of Roman Catholic communities.

Basic searching is free of charge, but there is a fee for advanced searching and to download images.
