Are confirmations only carried out by a bishop then? Seems strange that, if confirmation is such a big thing, we have baptism registers but Iíve never come across a confirmation register.

Thanks for all the responses.

Didnít swallow anything as far as Iím aware. The surgeon said he didnít know what caused it, it would probably not happen again and, so far, it hasnít.

Nothing to do with a hernia in my case - Iíll spare you the gory details - but nothing two weeks in intensive care couldnít cure!

Not quite sure that GENUKI is entirely correct. As far as I am aware, the present St Thomas, Norbury was built and opened c.1839. Prior to this, baptisms took place at the old Norbury Chapel; the records for which are somewhat sketchy and, consequently, it may well have been difficult for older people to prove they had been baptised.

Question answered! Thanks.

Iíll freely admit to knowing little about religious matters but it seems that people were in a hurry to get baptised so they could be confirmed by the bishop - whatever that involved.

There's no real logic to it. The main concentration is between 27 May 1877 and 22 July 1877. Some don't have ages, which I'm assuming are infants, but the majority do. There are a few scattered ages outside this period but they're in the minority.

The majority are in their teens but some are younger and there are others in their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s and two aged 61.

The vicar was a "J Gordon" and he baptised both before and after this period.

My GGGGrandfather died of ďMortification of legĒ. Iíve always assumed that itís more to do with lack of a blood supply.

Having suffered from a blood supply issue to my own bowels, I can tell you that it isnít very pleasant!
