Old Registers

St Mary's Parish Church, Market Drayton (legally known as "St Mary's Drayton-in-Hales") only holds the current Baptism and Wedding Registers.

The Churchyard was closed by Order of the Queen in Privy Council in the early 1960's and there have been no burials in the churchyard for over half a century.

So all the Burial Registers and all the old Baptism and Wedding Registers are held in the County Archive Office in Shrewsbury.
