In the UK, the official records of births, deaths and marriages are only kept as far back as 1837. However, many Church records exist from far earlier than this, sometimes by hundreds of years.

All of the Church records from the parish of Whitkirk have been deposited with West Yorkshire Archive Services. Please contact them directly for all enquiries concerning these.
