Title: Non Conformist registers online
Post by: candleflame on Thursday 11 June 20 23:15 BST (UK)
Has anyone bought either credits or a full sub to see non conformist records on either BMD registers or the Genealogist? I'm just wondering what a 'full record ' will reveal and if it's worth the money.
I had wondered if they were downloadable from the National Archives free trial, but it directs you to the Genealogist. Thanks.

Are these the RG4,5 and 8?

They're on FindMyPast but the images vary depending on who wrote them.  Some are very thorough, giving info about mother's mn and place of birth (for baptisms) and more. Others are just a bare minimum.

Thanks Gadget. Yes I found one on BMD for RG4. I'll try and find it on FindMyPast but I'm not seeing how to exactly. Is there a way of searching RG4 without putting in a surname as its not coming up with a surname search. Thanks .

In FindMyPast, go to A-Z records.  Then type in non-conform  in the box.  This will offer you various collection. Select Eng & Wales non-conf baptism or Marriages or Burials.

The collections are not very complete but more or less all that's there.

Baptisms~

There are other collection for various areas at the top level (just searching on non-Conf in the A-Z) - Cheshire; Gwent; London Bunhill Fields; Norfolk; Shropshire
