Rochdale parish registers: Dates and current locations etc.

The place:

A parish and market town, hundred of Salford; 9 miles from Todmorden (Yorks), 12 from Manchester, 215 from London. The Church, dedicated to St. Chad, is a vicarage, in the Archdeaconry of Chester. The parish includes the Yorkshire chapelries of Dob Cross, Friarmere, Lydgate, and Saddleworth, and although these chapelries have their own registers for some periods, the registers of the mother parish should not be overlooked.
