Baptisms

Three different figures for baptism are shown. In the earlier statistics the figures are infant baptisms and baptisms for those of riper years. In the later statitistics infant is taken to mean aged under 1, a second figure is given for ages 1 to 12 and a figure for 12 and over. Thus comparison is not all that easy. In addition the official figures from 1902 to the 1950s are projected from incomplete records.

The chart gives infant baptisms for live births but this has been adjusted to include all the under 12 baptisms, this inflates the figure for more recent baptisms but probably gives a fairer comparison.
