Question #1: The Lancashire, Leigh (St Mary) records indicate baptism, marriages and burials are included. However, most do not include them all. Where are the rest?
Answer #1: Although the links for all Leigh (St Mary) record sets indicate that they include baptism, marriage, and burial records, only the 1661-1744 collection includes all three Record Types. Records included in each set are as follows:

  • Baptisms, Marriages, Burials, 1661-1724 includes only burials.
  • Baptisms, Marriages, Burials, 1724-1744 includes christenings, marriages, and burials.
  • Baptisms, Marriages, Burials, 1744-1781 includes christenings up to Image #245, and burials from Image #246-373.
  • Baptisms, Marriages, Burials, 1782-1797 includes christenings up to Image #180, and burials from Image #181-201.
