One of the best sources for genealogical research is civil registration. In order to find birth, marriage and death entries one needs to know the place and also what Registration District it is in.


The aim of this book is to answer the second question posed by any family historian after being introduced to the indexes of civil registrations of birth, marriage and death. The first question is likely to be: 'Where did the event take place'? Family of other sources will mention a place, possible a parish. The indexes, however, only list the Registration Districts. The researcher immediately sees the need to pose the second question: 'What Registration District is this place in'?

This book is a simple, alphabetical, county-by-county listing of over 18,000 places, including parishes and townships with their Registration Districts, for each county in England and Wales. The period of emphasis is from 1837-1930, that most useful for civil registration research.
