All Saints Newchurch parish records

I have been exploring the short life of Alexina Louise Mansel who was baptised at Birdham in 1829. Her mother died shortly after her birth and was buried at All Saints parish church, Newchurch, Isle of Wight.

I checked the burials at Birdham but could not find mention of the death and burial of Alexina. I was hoping that I would find the records of burials online but they don’t seem to be digitised yet.

Instead I looked up the Isle of Wight Records Office where you can consult the original registers or copies on microfiche: NEW/REG/BUR/1 1813-1864. All the entries in the parish registers from 1539 to 1900 have been recorded in the Personal Names Index. This is a card index that can be consulted in the Record Office search room.

The Isle of Wight Record Office can be found at
26 Hillside
Isle of Wight
PO30 2EB

I will try and make an appointment to see these records next time we visit.
