The records listed in this section are those located in non-denominational or non-official church records (other records which may provide similar information can be located under the headings Church Records and Cemeteries). The majority of the records are registers of baptisms, burials and marriages. Baptismal registers can contain such information as name of person baptised, dates of baptism and birth, name of child, parents' names and professions, place of birth and name of minister baptising. Burial registers can contain such information as dates of burial and death, name of person buried, age, place of residence, occupation, cause of death, where buried and name of officiating minister. Marriage registers can contain such information as names of people being married, when and where married, ages, condition (ie bachelor or spinster), occupation, place and length of residence, father's name and occupation, impediments to marriage and name of officiating minister. Not all registers give such comprehensive information. The records relate to various places as follows:
