  4. Click on the Edit Source button next to Resources


  5. Copy and paste the following code directly below the heading:

  7. Scroll down to the ===Church Records=== heading. Delete everything under that heading. Stop when you get to the ===Census Records=== heading.


  8. If there are any dates under the Non-Conformists Records section that look like this:
    Non-Conformist Records[edit | edit source]

    Make sure to leave the information and only update the header.

    • Or if it looks like this:

    Non-Conformist Churches[edit | edit source]

    Aldridge Wesleyan Methodist Chapel parish registers of christenings, marriages and burials are available online for the following years

      WESLEYAN METHODIST CHAPEL (1852) Online Records

    FREG 1852-1961




    Deposited parish registers at Walsall Local History Centre.

    Make sure to leave the table and only update the header

    • Please leave a note for me in the comments section, which states, "table in non-conformist section". Then I can notate it to be fixed/removed in a future project.

    The updated Non-Conformists section should look like this.

    Non-Conformists (All other Religions)[edit | edit source]
