The Local Government Act, 1972 reformed the local government on the county and district levels in England and Wales. All the changes were put in place by 1974. For this reason, the Northumberland and Durham records include 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. We have included a full list of the places represented in this collection to assist with your family history research in the Useful links and resources section.
