About the records

Middlesex & London Baptisms Index 1538-1882 records over 140,000 baptisms in Middlesex and London which are not included at as part of their former International Genealogical Index.
In addition to the father’s name and date of baptism a large amount of other information is included where it appears in the original parish register. This can include mother’s forename and surname, parish, actual address and date of birth.

Middlesex & City of London Burials Index 1560-1909 covers over 169,100 burials for the period 1560-1909.

The index contains surname and forename, age where given in the register, year of burial, parish and additional info, which may include addresses, parents names and other personal details.

This collection can help you locate individuals who were living in London or Middlesex at a particular time. It is also likely (though you cannot be 100% sure) that they had been living in the area where they were buried. So if you suspect an ancestor might have been living in London or Middlesex, searching these records may help confirm this.
