Ancoats All Souls, Lancashire Genealogy
ANCOATS All Souls, was a "district church, erected in Everystreet, Ancoats, in 1839".
By the year 1880, Ancoats township had at least six chapelries with chapels built within it, and all residing within the parish boundary of, and under the ecclesiastical jurisdiction of Manchester Cathedral (Our Lady, St George & St Denys). To see these chapelries and the years in when they began in operation, scroll down to "Church Records" (Hint: Click the links to view ranges of years with online data available for these chapelry registers of baptisms, marriages and burials.)
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.

If you do not locate your ancestor in the above chapelry links above and in Manchester Cathedral links (below), and before researching in any other Lancashire parish, you must include a thorough search into all of Manchester City's attached chapelries (over 150 of them)! Unfortunately, Manchester Cathedral (the parish) is England's largest parish; thus each chapelry's baptisms, marriage and burial registers (where extant) must be searched. To see and then search what's online for each one of Manchester City's chapelries and district churches--view a complete list of all its chapels HERE (scroll down to "Church Records").
