Transcript records for baptisms, marriages and burials for the Northumberland and Durham parishes of Berwick upon Tweed, Elsdon, Meldon, Newcastle St Nicholas and Tynemouth are newly available at Findmypast.
Over 42,000 new baptism transcripts make that collection now 932,340 records. Marriages are augmented by over 37,000 additions for a total of 880,409. Burials now total 776,384 with the addition of over 25,000 records.
You may not find your ancestor listed by name. Some burials are listed as "A Boy", "A Girl", "A Poor Man" "A Man Unknown", "A Begging Stranger", "A Poor Travalir", "A Soldier" etc.

The Greater London Burial Index receives over 35,000 additional records covering 15 parishes. The index now comprises over two million names from over 300 Anglican and non-conformist parishes in the Greater London area between 1399 and 1992.
