As far as I know, the films of these registers were prepared by (or for) the
Lancashire Record Office (LRO) in Preston and are not on open sale. As an
aside, a reel of film of an Anglican parish register from the Manchester
Central Library costs around £65. The Lancashire Family History & Heraldry
Society (LFHHS) has not produced transcripts or indexes to the registers of
any of the Catholic churches in Preston. If you have dates for the events
you seek, then it is possible someone MAY be able to provide a look-up.
