Where would I start looking for Baptist records in Surrey and Poplar and Deptford in the late
1700's and early 1800's?
I was emailed a link to the Poplar Chapel...it was Baptist and demolished after WWII. All these years, I have been searching the C of E and now they might be Baptist.

When civil registration came in, most non-parochial registers were handed over to the Registrar General and made their way to the National Archives where they can be found in series RG 4 to RG 8. See the catalogue for details.

Also see "Non-conformist births, marriages and deaths (1567-1840)" on this page -
