Catholic Family History Society Mission Register Transcripts

What are the Mission Register Transcripts?

Typed transcripts, photocopies and digitised images of the registers of Roman Catholic missions in England and Wales. These include births and baptisms, confirmations and First Communions, admission records to Catholic institutions, marriages, conversions, deaths and burials, memorial and monumental inscriptions, wills, and other printed material.

Where and when: geographical coverage and dates

The transcripts cover missions in most counties of England and are particularly strong for the London and Middlesex area. They date chiefly from the 18th to 20th centuries, though more recent transcripts are closed for 110 years.
