Parish Register for Walpole St. Peter - The Register or Registers was
stolen from the parish church in the 1960's. This selfish act has potentionally left gaps
in time where no parish records exist. The only other sources of parish records are the
Archdeacon Transcripts (with a typical coverage of 60% to 70% of the General Register) and
Bishop's Transcripts (with a typical coverage of over 90% of the General Register). The
Bishop's Transcripts are only available at the Norfolk Record Office at Norwich. Another
record that can be checked are Marriage Licennce Bonds. Please see theNorfolkpage
on this site for more details.
