FreeREG houses our parish and nonconformist registers of baptisms, marriages and burials. Our easy-to-use search engine allows you to explore UK church records for free online. 

The recording of non-civic registers began in England and Wales in 1538; this is separate and distinct from the civil registration process that began in 1837. 

We are currently developing a new version of FreeREG, which is halfway through its transformation. This will be a template for the future development of FreeBMD and FreeCEN.
