Right as some of you may know i am getting married nextyear in Cyprus.

As i will be getting married in a Chapel there law states that i must provide a Baptism cert.

I dont have alot of contact with my mother and my Father pastaway years ago cry boohoo

Anways i have been told i have been christened but i cannot find any record of this.

The church that i am ment to have had this done is/was on Westbourne road Birkenhead this no longer stands but i cant find what the name of the church was called if i can find the name i can find out if i really was christened.

Otherwise its off to church for me.

Cheers peps happy hunting.

Methodist Church?

The best thing you can do is visit a church nearby it and ask some one who works there,
they might have contacts or something similar.

you neva know churches might be connected with each other.

There has to be a "Central" Records office.
You might try calling into another church and just asking.

Were doing what we can to keep you out of church on a sunday lol

The diocese office and possibly local cathedral will store records, but as to which one ye go to will depend upon the religion.
