These can be accessed in the series RG 4 and RG 8. Copies of most of the registers deposited at TNA can also be found on read in local record offices and some family history societies. Indexed copies of these can be accessed online for a fee at www.thegenealogist.co. uk. The FamilySearch website has a comprehensive set of free indexes to The National Archives collection, but not the original records.

Ancestry and Findmypast have a growing number of indexes and copies of Nonconformist records too. Some Nonconformist churches and chapels made copies of the registers which they sent to the Registrar General for their own use, while others never handed theirs in. These local registers were often later deposited in county record offices, along with post-1837 registers. Nevertheless, there may still be some records held by local ministers. Some listings to Nonconformist records can be found on TNA’s Discovery website and record offices own online catalogues. This is particularly useful for those which might be held in other counties or specialist archives. Where they do exist, Nonconformist registers can often include far more information than those of the Church of England registers.
