It also includes Bishop’s Transcripts – copies of parish registers sent to the bishop of a diocese.The registers included are from originals deposited at London Metropolitan Archives as well as those formerly held by Guildhall Library Manuscripts section. A full list of the Church of England parishes in London can be found in the more help section. These have been arranged in two ways, alphabetically by name and alphabetically by modern London borough.

You should note that marriages after 1754 were meant to be recorded in separate registers however some churches continued to record marriages amongst composite registers. Therefore some marriages between 1754 and 1812 will be included in this data collection.
