There were about one hundred and seventy parishes in Bedfordshire in the 1700s all of which would conduct their own baptisms.  Of these five were in the town of Bedford.

C of E Baptisms were in the font in the parish church. The Baptist Denomination did do full immersion but they did not baptise babies. There was a Baptist Chapel in Stevington.

For much of their history, Baptists practised baptism in local rivers and lakes. Today many Baptist Chapels have a large "bath" in which to carry out total immersion.
