Here you go:-)
For St.Marylebone here is a list of all the Anglican churches in 1890 which
may be useful.
As always, corrections most welcome.
St.Marylebone Parish (which ended up with 26 ecclesiastical parishes by
1890 - 9 parishes today)
was a unit of civil government, in Middlesex until 1889, then the new County
of London; a Vestry until 1900, becoming the Metropolitan Borough of
St.Marylebone , and then part of City of Westminster in 1964. - The
appropriate Godfrey Maps
[website at end] show parish boundaries.
This list of St.Marylebone churches 1890 may help, with date founded where
known. St Marylebone [St.Mary le bourne] is the original parent parish of
almost all parishes. [but moved - see note below]
N.B. For marriage certificates referring to the [Parish] Church of St,Mary
see note under St.Mary, Bryanston Square, below.
I've tried to comment about their IGI status, but if you go to
www.familysearch.org and Browse > Browse
Library Catalogue > Placename Search [enter St Marylebone -N.B.Placename
search is picky about spelling - experiment with StMarylebone,
St.Marylebone, &c.] and select
St.Marylebone, Middlesex ] > Church Records and Church Records-Indexes, you
will see a list of all the LDS film holdings.
Batch numbers are at this site
Some churches may appear on the BVRI rather than the IGI.
If on the IGI or BVRI then the LDS has a film of the registers.[which may
not be complete].
Registers should be with the Westminster City Archives or with
LMA,Northampton Row, if not still at church.
