Question: Can you tell me a good website for figuring out the Civil Registration districts for English villages in the 19th century?

Answer: I would suggest the map website I use on     This has proved to be very useful for more than the district.  I used this website for maps and information about the parish my great-grandfather was born in Blakenhall, Cheshire, England.  The following data was supplied: Wybunbury is an Ancient Parish in the county of Cheshire. Other places in the parish include: Basford, Bartherton, Batherton, Blakenhall, Bridgemere, Bridgmere, Checkley cum Wrinehill, Chorlton, Hatherton, Hough, Hunsterson, Lea, Rope, Shavington cum Gresty, Sound, Stapeley, Walgherton, and Willaston. Records begin Parish Records 1558, Bishops Transcripts 1600. Non-Church of England denominations identified in Wybunbury include: Primitive Methodist and Wesleyan Methodist Association.
