Norfolk Baptisms, Banns, Marriages and Burials new on Findmypast

Over 4.6 million baptism, banns, marriage and burial records from Nelson's English county of Norfolk are new at Findmypast. The indexes are linked to images of the originals.

The 1,833,772 Baptism records, from 546 parishes including a few in Suffolk, are as early as 1501 and as late as 1915.  You may want to browse through adjacent records on the image, I unexpectedly found a relative born in London but returned to Norfolk for baptism in the mother's"home" family church.

953,616 Marriage records, including more than 183,000 from Norwich, are from 1650 to 1931.

1,444,275 Burial records include a few odd names: 2 Men & A Boy; 3 Russian Soldiers; 5 Russian Soldiers; a Man Child; and many with partial names. They date from 1475 to 1990.

There are only a few Banns.
