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 last updated in January 2016 and October 2017, and now contains 29,563 entries. It is available as a PDF file (2.5 Mb), for which Adobe Acrobat Reader or a similar viewer is required.
