Bishop Street Methodist Church Baptism Registers

There appear to be three extant volumes of Baptismal Records directly relating to Bishop Street Methodist Church. The current Church baptism register runs from 1877 to the present, and a transcription, kindly prepared by Rachel Horton, is available on line.

At the Leicester Record Office there are two further volumes, covering the periods 1837-1855 and 1855-1877. These both cover not just Bishop Street but the whole of the Leicester Wesleyan Methodist Circuit. At some point an unknown researcher transcribed these older registers, got them on to a computer, and printed out a list in alphabetical order, a printed copy of which is now at our church. In summer 2010 Helen Peberdy kindly got these back into a computerised form, so they are now also available on line.

All three registers are available  as html pages - an unformatted list in date order, with details separated by commas - quick to load and search, (use ctrl+F to bring up a Find facility), but not so good to print or read. They are also therefore available as tabulated pdf files - better for reading or printing:-
