Pudsey All Saints Chapel & Parish Church Burials

 

 

The burial registers for All Saints Chapel were included in Calverley Parish registers. In 1824, All Saints Chapel was replaced by St Lawrence Church and became a parish in it's own right.

Due to the sheer size of the parish register files, it is neccesary to split them into smaller sections. The burial entries here include earlier ones for the All Saints Chapel extracted from the Calverley registers, as well as those at St Lawrence. Not all earlier Pudsey burials can be identified, so many burials performed at Pudsey will be found in the Calverley registers or may be duplicated there.

The Gregorian calendar was not adopted until 1752, previous to this the new year started on March 25th (Lady Day), so January 1st to March 24th would come after December in the same year. It is useful to remember this when calculating age, January 1700 in modern terms would be January 1701.

1752 itself would be a strange year, losing the 3rd to the 13th of September when the calendar changed over and ending on the 31st of December for the first time.

It is worth noting that the spelling in these records vary greatly and the searcher shouldn't pay strict attention to the spelling when looking for an entry. As an example, the simple surname COUSIN can also be found as CAUSEN, COUSEN, COOSEN, COOSENN, COOSINGE, COOSYNE, COSIN and COZEN, all in an eighty year period, often refering to the same person.
