The Local Government Act, 1972 reformed the local government on the county and district levels in England and Wales. All the changes were put into place by 1974. For this reason, the Northumberland and Durham records includes villages outside of their current boundaries; such as, Newcastle in the County of Tyne and Wear or Romaldkirk in the County of Yorkshire. Additionally, the records include Cumberland, which is now part of Cumbria.

The records include 213 parishes and villages. We have included a list of all those represented in this collection to assist with your family history research.
