Independent Chapel

Mill Brow with Marple Bridge


Although this transcript is taken from photographs of the original register there will be errors mainly caused because it is possible to read an entry in more than one way.  Also the minister spells surnames in different ways throughout.  All the early baptism entries have a B in the column but it is not clear whether this denotes a birth or a baptism.  From 1784 they are definitely shown as baptisms.  Some families are shown together on one page.  I have slotted these in at the dates shown. 

 For a number of years there is no baptism date and it is difficult to tell whether a baptism was entered Nov/Dec one year or Jan/Feb the next.
