To search for the Dudley records inputted by Staffordshire FreeREG - select County as Staffordshire and for Place select Dudley Staffs. Although most of Dudley is within Worcestershire - many of it's records are for people living in the surrounding Staffordshire Parishes. The Parish itself was always completely surrounded by Staffordshire and has been incorporated with other Staffordshire Parishes for Civil Registration purposes since 1837.

Dudley Archives has deposited Parish registers Bap 1876-1970 Marr 1877-1977 (microfilmed for Bap 1876-1948 and marriages 1877-1942)

Coverage of the Dudley parishes in the International Genealogical Index for the microfilmed years of St Thomas and St Edmund's parishes is generally good for Baptism and Marriage records but will not include data for this parish and index entries for Dudley should be compared with the original record source to establish transcription errors or submission from individuals which may not be based on deposited records at Dudley Archives. It is also advisable to seek burial records from the burials registers which rarely fature in the indexed batches of the International Genealogical Index.

To find the names of the neighbouring parishes, use Jurisdictions 1851.
