Baptism Greenwich, England 1902-1904
« on: Friday 21 February 20 07:03 GMT (UK) »
Where can I find the Anglican Baptism records in Greenwich, England 1902-1904?
I want to search them for Vera Daisy Hill, although she may have been baptised with a different name and her name changed subsequently. Her mother's name was Violet Bowdidge.
I have been told Vera was brought up with Cynthia Bowdidge, who was born in 1901, so I expect if there is a baptism record for Vera it will be at the same place as Cynthia's. I can find a Baptism record for Cynthia on Findmypast Members Trees, but I cannot find the original source for that record. According to the Member's Tree Cynthia was baptised 1 Aug 1901, Greenwich, East Christ Church, Kent.
Her sister Mabel Bowdige (diff. spelling) was baptised  17 Sept 1903, Christ Church, East Greenwich, Kent. If I could even find Cynthia or Mabel's record at least i would know I was in the right place.
The member must have got these records somewhere but I cannot find them anywhere.

Vera Daisy Hill's birth was registered in March quarter 1904 - Greenwich Registration District, mother's maiden name of Bowdidge.

I cannot readily see a baptism for Vera.
Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
Remember - "They'll be found when they want to be found" !!!
If you don't ask the question, you won't get an answer.

Thanks for all the replies so quick! I will check London, England, Church of England Births and Baptisms, 1813-1917, on Ancestry, thank you all.
I will probably have to look at the Library edition.
I have plenty of other details on the Family on Wiki Tree. I must upload the Gedcom to Ancestry.
I was just looking for the Baptism record.
Regarding the related post, that was for the Civil record. I have ordered the Civil Birth record from the GRO which should arrive very shortly.
