As a couple of others have recommended - try Sheffield Indexers!
They have BMD indexes.  Good forum too.

Brilliant news, just heard back from a site called Sheffield Indexers, and they have certain BDM's detail's free to read on their site. Did find a Sheffield City BDM site, but even this would not give me any info. So happy having found Walter and Eliza Clark.

Ran into the same problem, although have heard that there might be a possibility of some form of searchable database coming soon?
But there is definitely a shortage of info on Sheffield's Parish Records.
For example found my Walter Clark in Freebdm 1869, but not in either Ancestry of Findmypast, now that is weird!!
And on taking directly to the Archives, they want a research fee from me!!
Any help out there PLZSSSS, Regards, Tim.


If you can give us an idea what dates and coverage also abode or names of BMD's in Sheffield  ??? maybe someone may know! more online resources or even visit the repositories in Sheffield.

Its best to think it out exactly what you want to request for and post all your total knowledge you have  on the issue! then allow the brains on here to start grinding to help you and there are some knowledgeable people.

Just checking - are you saying that no archives should charge a fee for work they do on your behalf?

This Sheffield BMD index list at first sight  ??? appears to be a voluntary source of BMD records, supplied by people donating info who have specific details of an ancestors BMD in their family tree or family records.

This could be either GRO index or certificate info (bought online), or local register office look up of their records by staff as to a request for a certificate, or (donated BMD certificate info by a family) actual certificate information given from private family records

Is it just BMD records


(Even maybe back page family bible ancestor or {Birth/ marriage event of a living person] GRO BMD/burial date record  ??? Even Headstone age - death date and date of birth  ???))
