This page will be about the churches of the East End
My birth Certificate states I was baptised in Guthrie Memorial Church in Moncur St in 1946 and the Minister Was Rev Holliday.
Has anyone images of Wellpark Free church, on the corner of Duke St and Ark lane? My husband’s 4x Great grands were married there, and while I understand it was knocked down in the 60s. there must be pictures of it somewhere? Any info on Wellpark would be gratefully received. Thank you.

be very helpful in getting certificate of baptism.
I don’t think you will be able to source a certificate of baptism because this was not a statutory document. I have mine dating from 1960 and it is more like a keepsake card that is signed by the Minister. To my knowledge, there would not be a copy of that document – it would have been handed to your parents. Or the baptism may only be recorded on the reverse side of your original birth certificate. There may be a record of your baptism in the archives of Guthrie Memorial Congregation Church but since I believe that church has been demolished, the records may well have been removed to The Mitchell Library. But that will only show a record of your baptism – there will be no certificate.
