Heptonstall St Thomas – Baptisms

BUTTERWORTH – Richard on 26 December 1793

It should read:

BUTTERWORTH – Simeon on 26 December 1793 Son of John and Ann Butterworth

This has been confirmed in the Censuses as the original document that was transcribed was very faint and was very difficult to read.

New transcriptions completed

Last updated on March 14th, 2019 at 04:02 pm

Our transcriptions team has been working hard and recently achieved a milestone by publishing the last of the parish church registers. With the completion of these transcriptions the team has transcribed all the available parish records in our Society’s area. This is a tremendous achievement only very slightly marred because we have not been able to get permission to work on the registers for from St Mary/Christ Church at Todmorden.
But the team is not resting on its laurels! They are now working on the Burial records for Stoney Royd Cemetery – the largest & current cemetery in Calderdale, along with smaller projects. They are also collaborating with Warley Community Association on transcribing the Burial Registers for Warley Town Cemetery.
Have you used any of the transcriptions to unlock you family history? please let us know by putting a comment here.
