When civil registration of births, marriages and deaths began in 1837, Suffolk was divided into a number of registration districts, each containing several parishes.
Consult the England Civil Registration page for an in-depth understanding.  The England 1851 Jurisdiction maps provide an interactive view of the parishes in relation to  district boundaries. (details about England 1851 Jurisdiction website)

Civil Registration Indexes

By identifying a person in the civil registration indexes, one is able to order a certificate from the General Register Office.  There are many sites that provide access to the civil registration indexes. FreeBMD is a preferred site since it provides free access and it has an excellent search capacity. FreeBMD searches can be conducted on a district level, county level or national level.
