John Dunning and I have recently taken digital photos of the burial and baptism registers for the parish that cover the 20th century to make sure their contents are preserved for posterity. We hope to make the copy of the burial register available for inspection by churchgoers, villagers and visitors alike. Copies of the individual pages in either register can then be requested. If you would like a copy of one or more pages (don’t forget to tell me which page(s) or for which individuals) that you can print yourself, then please email Bryn Jones on This email address is being protected from spambots.

Other earlier parish registers have been transcribed mostly as typewritten documents. They are in the process of being transcribed further in order to create searchable electronic documents that we can also make available on the web site and in the church or the village hall for inspection. Volunteers to help with the transcription would be most welcome. In the meantime, if you have any questions relating to the registers please contact John Dunning on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or Bryn Jones on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. These registers cover:

 

  • Baptisms from 1704
  • Marriages from 1702
  • Burials (including cremations) from 1704

Original registers no longer in active use are held in the East Riding Archives in the Treasure House, Beverley and may be viewed there.

 

They are to be found as a part of a set of 93 documents in the Archives held under the generic title Bishop Burton All Saints’ Parish Records with a catalogue reference of PE140 and a place code of NA1116. Their description reads:  “Includes baptism registers 1562-1872, marriage registers 1613-1978, burial registers 1613-1900, service registers 1924, 1949-1982; Pearman bequest account book 1922-1951, terrier and inventory 1926-1927, volume entitled 'Certain Sermons or Homilies appointed to be read', churchwardens' account and vestry minute book 1795-1861, parochial church council minute books 1920-1980 and account book 1922-1950, Hansby's Charity and papers belonging to the trust 1652-1921, overseers of the poor book 1800-1836, visitors' book 1927-1996 and mothers' union records 1937-1989”

 

The Archives also contain registers from the Baptist Chapel in the village. The registers are on microfilm and cover births 1755-1836 and burials 1778-1794 (PRO reference RG4/3223). Their catalogue reference is MF2/3 and their place code is NA116.
