Until 1786, there were two Yearly Meetings, at Aberdeen & Edinburgh, within which various Monthly and other subordinate Meetings existed at various times. In 1786, they were replaced by North Britain Half Years Meeting, subordinate to London Yearly Meeting. This was renamed Scotland General Meeting in 1807.

Scotland was not subject to the Registration , Marriage Act and Non-Parochial Registers Acts, therefore the question of surrendering the registers did not arise. In 1867 a Digest was made along similar lines to that in England & Wales. The original registers are kept with the Meeting records.
