‘Ancestry.co.uk – The West Yorkshire Archive Service is pleased to be working in partnership with www.Ancestry.co.uk to digitise, index and make available on their website copies of the Church of England and non-conformist records in our care. We are grateful to the Dioceses of Bradford, Wakefield and Ripon & Leeds and the parishes in those dioceses, as well as to the West Yorkshire Baptist and Methodist churches for their assistance in enabling this to happen.
