INDEX OF PLACES IN ENGLAND AND WALES

These pages are only intended to be used in conjunction with the list of Registration Districts in England and Wales 18371974  For each place listed, this index shows the county and registration district in which it was situated between 1837 and 1974, at which latter date the districts were considerably altered.

Please note that this is not intended to be a comprehensive gazetteer of place names, and that only civil parishes named in the General Register Offices published lists are included. These often differed from the ancient parishes in existence at the start of the 19th century.

As a result of more precise information becoming available, the listing was thoroughly updated in May 2011, and now runs to almost 29,500 entries. It is available as a PDF file (1.7 Mb), for which Adobe Acrobat Reader or similar viewer is required.
