Baptism & Birth Certificates

These certificates may have been reduced in size to fit on the page and are not in scale with each other.

Birth Certificate

size : 187mm. x 116mm.


An example of a stamped (Inland Revenue) certified entry of baptism from an 1825 Baptism Register.

size : 230mm. x 160mm.


An example of multiple certified entries of baptism from a 1781/2 Baptism Register.

size : 189mm. x 184mm.



Front of the above multiple entries of baptism.

An example of past "extraction" of an entry in a baptism register.
In this instance the page was cut out, damaging the register.

I am at present in contact with the church and archives in an attempt to re-unite this "extract" with the register.
If anyone knows of the location of the original register book, that has this entry cut out, please contact me.

Back of above "extraction" showing the possible date of birth.
April 29th 1837.

An example of a Primitive Methodist Baptism Certificate 1865

size : 261mm. x 150mm.


An example of a Short Certificate "Birth Certificate” 1884.

This is more correctly called "A Certificate of Registry of Birth"

size : 195mm. x 96mm.

Long “Birth Certificate” 1927

size : 347mm. x 164mm.

Redacted Stillbirth Certificate


Here is an example of the "new uncertified" copies of a birth register entry.
I think they are adequate for genealogical purposes.

As can be seen the image is made up of two parts cut and pasted together rather than a full page containing redactions. This provides in some ways a neater and certainly smaller image.
Note also the margins are trimmed to the columns, this would prevent any mariginal notes being excluded from the image.
