Baptism Registers of Mayday University Hospital Chaplaincy

  • AR175
  • Collection
  • 1867 - 2002

Collection consists of ten Baptism Registers, nine for the Croydon Workhouse Chapel covering the period October 1867 to February 2002 and one for the Croydon Isolation Hospital covering the period February 1950 to March 1964.

These registers do not, at least in the modern period, contain entries for Catholics. If a Catholic baptism was required then a local priest was called in and the baptism recorded in the register of that Church. In the 1960s this was usually St Marys but in more recent years this has been St Andrews in Thornton Heath.
