  • The Guernsey Seociety web site has an index of St Helier baptisms registered from 1842 to 1909 - PDF transcripts of the registers are linked from the Baptism Notes section. I have a report of a baptism in the transcripts not appearing in the index, so check carefully!
  • St Helier Later Parishes (created when the Town Church was no longer big enough): St Mark, St James, St Paul, St Jude, All Saints, St Simon, St Andrew, St Luke. All of these Ecclesiastical Parishes commenced operation after 1842 and therefore their registers are at the Superintendant Registrar's Office.
