This database contains images of Church of England baptism records in registers from parishes in the West Yorkshire area of England.

Parish Records

Before civil registration in England began in 1837, key events in a person’s life were typically recorded by the church rather than the state. Parish records are the best source of vital record information in England before the nineteenth century and remain an important source thereafter.

Baptismal and Christening Records

Children were usually baptized (or christened) in the Church of England within a few days or weeks of birth. The forms used for the baptismal records in this database record the

baptismal date
child’s name
parents’ names
parish/residence (abode)
occupation
person who performed the ceremony

Earlier Records

In 1812, George Rose’s Act called for preprinted registers to be used for separate baptism, marriage, and burial registers as a way of standardizing records. These standardized registers are included in this collection. For earlier registers, please see the link provided in the Related Data Collections section.
