I have now completed the digitisation of the Parish Baptism registers from 1850 to 1872. You can see these as an attachment to the article Bishop Burton Baptism Registers. 1872 is the start of a new book of baptisms that I am now in the process of transcribing. This book contains records up to 2006. This transcription will contain more information on each baptism including: date of baptism, forenames of person being baptised, father's name (if known), mother's name, family surname, parental occupation, trade or title, date of birth (some records), god parents (some records), and notes eg. adult baptism, private baptism. The transcription will exclude records after 1919 unless the person being baptised is known to have died. This is the same policy that is applied to census records.
