For the purposes of registering Births and Deaths, Berkshire was divided into a number of Registrars' Sub-Districts, which could cover anything from part of a large town, up to a group of several dozen rural parishes. The boundaries of these areas have changed frequently over the years since 1837, and as a result many birth and death records have been transferred between different register offices.

This page will be updated each time new records are added to the database, and recent additions will also be indicated on the Updates page.
