Church Records

The Cornwall Record Office agreed to the photographing of the parish registers by the Church of the Latter Day Saints. Some of these photos have been transcribed and placed on a web site by the LDS for the use of the general public. Each parish has been given a series of Batch Numbers and Hugh Wallis has created a web site which allows you to do a speedy search of these records for any one name which appears on the register in that particular time frame.

Click on one of the blue batch numbers below and you will be taken to Hugh's site, then click on the corresponding number and when the page opens enter a surname. Make sure you check all numbers as some contain entries from the Bishops Transcripts. On marriages if you know the spouses name enter that as well. 

The World Methodist Society also agreed to their records being photographed and again some have been transcribed and placed on the LDS site. I have listed the following from the Redruth Circuit:

The Cornwall Record Office (CRO) also holds the following records:

The CRO also holds Non-Conformist records for the years 1817 - 1837.

We shall be working to transcribe any records which are not presently on the LDS site and will place them on this site as well as submitting them for inclusion on the LDS site. We will start with the Burial Records.
