    According to Steve Archer's site there are some records available on FamilySearch.org
    https://www.archersoftware.co.uk/igi/fs-wor.htm

    Worcestershire County Council site tells what they hold:
    https://gis.worcestershire.gov.uk/web...arishRegister/

    Ancestry has Worcestershire CoE parish registers, as do Findmypast

    There are also some records on FreeReg:

    Default Online Genealogical Index

    The Online Genealogical Index (OGI) is a very useful free resource. You select country/county, add location, approx year and hit submit. These are the ten hits for Stourport, 1804: https://ogindex.org/search?country=En...on&burrials=on.

    Megan has already given several of these, but the OGI - my latest 'find'! - is a quick way of doing it, and it also tells you if a site requires paid access.

    Hope you find your man.

    I have been hoping that someone will produce something like this, but it has some glitches, or perhaps its just needs adding to - but when I searched for Wales, Pembrokeshire; first of all it would only list the counties of England, and then when it did list the ones in Wales, it says there are no records for Pembrokeshire; something which is incorrect.

    Lets hope that they iron out these issues.

    Not to mention getting to grips with the distinction between parochial and non-parochial registers.

    Thank you for your help I can't find him anywhere perhaps he wasn't christened or he was and it wasn't registered or it might not have been transcribed thank you.

    I have found his marriage in 1825 at Tipton, Staffordshire, and all his census records, but so far no sign of a baptism I'm afraid.

    Thank you for your help I can't find him anywhere
    Does "anywhere" include going in person to the record office and searching the parish registers? See the 2nd paragraph of message #2.
