Many of the Church of Ireland records were lost in the Public Records Office fire of 1922. These are indicated as 'Lost". However as Church of Ireland records were effectively state records, the records of marriage (from 1845) are also in the General Registrar's Office. Many are still in local custody while others are in one of a variety of other archives, Representative Church Body Library or National Archives of Ireland.
