Liverpool St Stephen Byrom Steet was created in 1792 when a former Baptist Church was acquired. The final service in the old St Stephen's church was held 1 August 1870.
The church moved to a new site in 1870 and was later amalgamated with St Ann Richmond. The church in Byrom Street closed in 1937.
"St. Stephen's church, [erected in 1851] originally built for a congregation of Protestant dissenters, but purchased and fitted up for the Established religion, in the patronage (stood within the boundaries) of...St. Nicholas' and St. Peter's" ancient parish.
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.
