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.

Probate records

Records of wills, administrations, inventories, indexes, etc. were filed by the court with jurisdiction over this parish.

Before 1858, Holborn St Andrew fell under the jurisdiction of the Court of the Archdeaconry of London. In practice, many residents left their wills in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury from the 1700s through 1858.[10] From 1858 to the present, refer to the Principal Probate Registry.

Go to London Probate Records to find the name of the court having secondary jurisdiction. Scroll down in the article to the section Court Jurisdictions by Parish.

Cemetery

St Andrew Holborn churchyard site

Transcripts of early Holborn St Andrew tombs found in the interior of the church were published in Catalogue of the most Memorable Persons who had visible Tombs, plated Gravestones ... in the City of London (through) A.D. 1700, which is available online.[11]

A cemetery survey (1910), available online, covers monumental inscriptions in the St Andrew Holborn churchyard.[12]

Find A Grave has a page about St Andrew Holborn Church monumental inscriptions.

Poor Law Unions

Contributor: Add information about the pertinent poor law unions in the area.
