The existing church of St Michael in Farnley is comparativelynew, though built on the site of older chapels. Baptisms and burials were
carried out here from an early period; some memorial stones in the church
yard date back to the 17th century. Known records date back to 1624.
Marriages for Farnley were carried out at Leeds parish church until 1839.
The marriage index here consists of all the 1,670 marriages that took
place in the 110 year period between 1839 and 1950. They are in date order.
The reference is the registration number at Leeds Register Office. 'x' signifies
that a party signed with a mark.
