Glossop Heritage Trust

Family History Pages

The intention of this section of the web site is to build up a set of links to histories of families connected to the Glossop area. In some cases the pages linked to will be part of this web site and in others they will be existing pages external to this web site. Please note that Glossop Heritage Trust is not responsible for the contents of these pages external to this web site.

This section of the web site is currently under construction so there may be little information at any given point in time but please check back as it is hoped that the amount of information available will be added to.

Tips For Absolute Beginners
Birth Marriage and Death Certificates - A valuable source of information, copies of these can be obtained from the Local Registry Office where the event was registered, the General Register Office at Southport or online at The GRO Web Site. Charges apply.
Census Returns - Available to view online, these are a detailed record of almost everyone in the country on census night. Information on all individuals in the household can be discovered. The first census useful to family historians is the 1841, and then every 10 years with the latest available being 1911, as census records are closed for 100 years.
Parish Registers - These provide information on baptisms, marriages and burials prior to the start of civil registration in 1837 but few survive before 1600. In 1812 separate printed registers were introduced for each event. Parish Registers can be quite difficult to track down. Some are available online, at local studies libraries or County Record Offices. Some may still be retained by the church.
