Explore New UK BMDs and Mining Records at Findmypast



The Greater London Marriage Index contains new records from the Royal College of Arms covering historic chapels at St James Duke’s Place, Gray’s Inn, Somerset House and the Austin Friars Dutch Reform Church. Dating back to the early 1500s, the records reveal details of residence, occupation, marriage and spouse. A number also include images of original documents.

England, Mining Disaster Victims – Uncover the details of miners and rescue workers who lost their lives in the mines of Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, and Yorkshire. Each record consists of a transcript that will reveal the circumstances surrounding the individual’s death, their age, the date of the incident and the name of the colliery.

Sticking with Derbyshire, almost 25,000 new Baptismal records, over 20,000 Marriage records and more than 16,000 Burials have been added for Alvaston, Boulton, Chellaston, Holbrook, Longford, Newton Solney and Wilne.

Over 50,000 new articles from 166 issues of The Social Review (Dublin, Ireland) spanning 1893 to 1896.

New additions are not the only update our Greater London Marriage Index has received this week. We’ve also merged a number of existing London marriage collections to make them accessible through one unified search. The Greater London Marriage Index will now also include results from the Middlesex Marriage Index, the West Middlesex Marriage Index, the St Andrew’s Holborn Marriage Index and our collection of Docklands and East End Marriages.
