Norfolk Record Office reference PD 557

The Norfolk Record Office reference PD 557/5 Marriages1813-1853 Entries from 1840 duplicate those in PD 557/6. The images contain both volumes which are distinct but duplicate volumes.

Known Issues

The microfilm conversion for this parish has given rise to some questions about the Marriage register for period 1840-1905 which are visible. The Norfolk Record Office reference PD 557/6 applies to the volume described as 1840-1901 (  register to 1924) The images have been displayed with and date as close as possible to the year 1901. The final entry number 70 in fact is for a marriage in 1905, number 69 was performed in 1901.

The microfilm for this volume has adopted the filming practice of filming two mariage entries and a partial image of the next page through the volume. The marriages are all available in consecutive order and the technique can at fit give rise to concerns that information is missing due to cut off images. The filming for many parishes in the diocese was undertaken in this way and the framing and dimensions of the register give rise to the filming sequence which in turn foms digital images on conversion.  

The burial register images 1758-1812 are offered in a duplicate image set to try to assist viewing the water damaged and faded entries on image 4 & 12 in the sequence of 16. By inverting the image the second of the two offered images may assist to read entries which although faded are legible (barely). The burials are taken from Norfolk Record Office PD 557/2 Baptisms and Burials 1758-1812
