    This info was gleaned from another forum, I'm putting this item on this catergory because although primarily concerning Yorkshire it does mention Co Durham and "a few parishes outside Yorkshire" and I couldn't see where else it would really fit in.

    "Some parishes in Yorkshire used what have become known as Dade Registers (These follow a format devised by a clergyman called William Dade, and the Archbishop of York, William Markham, was so impressed by this that he recommended its use throughout his diocese) for some or all of the period 1778-1812 (approx). These often give a large amount of genealogical information, especially at baptisms, but a burial entry would typically include the name of one or both parents, even for an adult.

    You'll see that there are also a few parishes outside Yorkshire where similar entries have been found. Not included in the list, but worth mentioning, is Co. Durham, where "Barrington Registers" (also named after a bishop) were in use at a similar period. They're not quite as comprehensive as the Dade ones, but they do tell you more than the brief entries found in most of the country at that time."

    I guess some or perhaps most will already know of those sources but the info may be of use to those who are unaware of them.

    Admin staff, if you consider this would be better in another place please feel free to move it.
