Surname Index

The names in the database are taken from the baptisms, marriages, burials and licences records to form a composite index. The entries are sorted by surname, forename and date. For burials and records after 1812, the full forename is included. Marriages and baptisms prior to 1812 give abbreviated forenames as provided by the Bedfordshire and Luton Archives and Records Service transcripts. Therefore, complete searches require reference to both full and abbreviated versions of a name, William and Wm, for example.

Because of the number of records, separate files have been created for a limited range of surnames so that searches can be made relatively quickly.

For licence entries, the year is given only for the bridegroom entry. Records without a date will be for the bride or surety on a licence.

Marriage entries with a place of District, for example Luton Dist, took place in that Registration District. They will have taken place in the Register Office or a Nonconformist Chapel. The original entry will be found on the disk for the location and will give the Volume and Page Number of the Registration. It may also provide the spouse specifically or two to four alternatives.
