The Lincolnshire parish registers are held at the Lincolnshire Archives. A portion of the collection has been supplied by the Lincolnshire Family History Society. In 1538, all parishes were required to record the life events of all parishioners including baptisms, marriages, and burials. They were all recorded in a single handwritten volume. This practice changed in 1811 when parishes were required to use separate standardised registers for each event. There are over 600 places available in the burial records. A full list of parishes, is available here Lincolnshire parish registers places .
