  • Note: The West Yorkshire Archive Service, Leeds, reports: "About 20 years ago thieves broke into the Church and made off with the safe containing the Church plate and the parish registers. The safe was later found upside down and empty in a ditch. The marriage register from 1871 survived because it was being used at a nearby Church at the time. It is sincerely hoped that the registers were not destroyed, and might one day turn up." All early marriages are with Kirkby Overblow.
