Parish History

The church of All Saints, formerly known as All Hallows, was founded in Norman times. One of the original City churches, its nave, bordered by narrow lanes, is now largely hidden behind commercial buildings at the junction of High Street and Corn Street.[1]


Civil Registration

Birth, marriages and deaths were kept by the government, from July 1837 to the present day. The civil registration article tells more about these records. There are several Internet sites with name lists or indexes. A popular site is FreeBMD.
