Hi All,
Can anyone tell me what register office for Births, Marriages and deaths which
covers Lisduff,  Co Monaghan

I am trying to find a Mary Ward born 1876 onwards parents Michael Ward and Eilis McCloskey.

Thanks for all your help

Is Lisduff the civil parish or an ecclesiastical parish?
Sean Wilson's site has information about registration districts, parishes, townlands etc.

I've got the same list as hallmark by consulting the site I mentioned in my previous post.
https://www.swilson.info/regdistmap.php
Put in Monaghan in county box and left registration district box empty.
Clicking on the name of each registration district shows it on a map. There is a list of civil parishes and towns in each district and a list of adjacent districts. Lisduff is not on any of these lists.

I first searched for Lisduff as a civil parish, then an ecclesiastical parish in Monaghan on the site with no results. Placename search showed only townlands with that name.

You can try the likes of this on https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/civil-search.jsp without first name if you want to look for siblings for example... adjust as needed
