A note from John Curnow Tanner, the compiler of this transcript.

This is an abstract of the St. Ives burial register from its beginning in 1653 till the end of the year 1752/53. I produced this largely for my own benefit, from the microfilm copy at my local Mormon Family History Centre, because much of the film was difficult to search for relevant entries.

The entries are in the same order as on the register, but the document differs from a proper transcript in that:

  1. Exact dates are not given, only the breaks between old-style years.
  2. Although I have usually tried to retain the original spelling of names, abbreviations have usually been expanded if the full name was unambiguous.
  3. Words describing status or occupation are usually given in lower case even though the original usually starts with a capital.
  4. Subsidiary wording such as ‘alias’ and ‘widow’ is given in unabbreviated form, and with modern spelling and grammar where no ambiguity would be caused.

Most of the entries were legible, but in many cases the original handwriting was ambiguous. For example it is often difficult to distinguish between the vowels a, e, o, u. The abstract has not been independently checked, and it would surprise me if I have not made any simple copying errors. Therefore anyone using it is strongly advised to verify entries against the original. Particular problems are to distinguish similar names, for example

In many , but not all, difficult cases, I have consulted either the baptisms (on the IGI) or the marriages (in Phillimore’s transcripts). These often help in the interpretation of partially illegible entries.

I have made no attempt to check the entries against the Bishop's Transcripts.
