Worth pointing out that (most) of these can be consulted either at the YAS at Leeds (until March 2015) or the Society of Genealogists in London.

They used to be, but now don't seem to be, available online to any extent. (The last time I checked one subscription website only had three of them searchable and browseable.)

The Huddersfield and Halifax libraries in conjunction with WYAS and Huddersfield University library cover most of the books mentioned above.

Huddersfield library have the full index of pre 1858 Will probates (the same as Borthwick Institute at York University) on micro film. Bradford & Barnsley libraries have the Bond Allegations of intent marriages index in book form

Wakefield WYAS have all the above also Wills probate index pre 1858 on micro film and original deeds Wills pre 1858  in their deeds register office. (same building)
