Lovelocks and Lovelucks arriving in the UK as Ships' Passengers

This data has been transcribed from an index to the Board of Trade's passenger lists of ships arriving in the United Kingdom from foreign ports outside of Europe and the Mediterranean from 1890-1960, as presented on the website.

Note that where an address is quoted this may simply have been the address the individual was to visit, rather than a permanent residence.

Each link in the boxes below will take you to a table of arrivals for that decade.

Links in the right-hand columns of the tables for each decade will take you to the appropriate Webtrees page.

GRO Records for England and Wales

The General Register Office (GRO) is part of Her Majesty's Passport Office and oversees civil registration in England and Wales. The Office maintains the national archive of all births, marriages and deaths dating back to 1837.

Births, Marriages and Deaths from July 1837: A large number of Lovelock birth, marriage and death events registered with the GRO were provided in the early days of the website by Malcolm Lovelock and Robert Sterry. However, not all Lovelock events had been extracted (see below). Most of the records were extracted directly from the GRO Indices by Malcolm and Robert, but the database also includes information provided by Gwen Eastment, John Dixon, and Alison Turner.
Last updated 2-Feb-2002.

Disclaimer: Although every effort was made to avoid errors, complete accuracy cannot be guaranteed in the transcription of such a large number of extracts from films, some of which were in poor condition.

The records are available as an Access Database, an Excel spreadsheet (with separate worksheets for births, marriages and deaths) or in HTML format as separate pages for:
GRO Lovelock births, GRO Lovelock marriages and GRO Lovelock deaths

A set of tables shows which events had been systematically extracted for which years/quarters by Malcolm and Robert. There is also some data for other events/years/quarters, mostly from other contributors (see above).

Post-1983 Records:

Transcriptions from the data at the, or The websites have been undertaken by Sue Lovelock and others of all available Lovelock and Loveluck entries from 1984 to 2007. The transcriptions are accessible through the links in the table below. Once again every effort has been made to avoid errors but complete accuracy cannot be guaranteed when transcribing such a large number of entries. Each link will take you to other tables containing the Birth, Marriage and Death data (as at 1 Sep 2018) for the particular year listed in the table. Births are recorded in alphabetical order of the first names of the individuals; Marriages are recorded in month order, and alphabetically within each month according to the first names of the Lovelock spouse; Deaths are recorded in month order, and alphabetically within each month according to the first names of the individual. Loveluck entries in all cases follow the Lovelock entries and the individuals' names are in bold.

Births, Marriages and Deaths 1984 - 2007:


Deaths 2007 - 2018:

The records of Deaths from 2007 to 2018 presently available on the above websites are probably far from complete. However the data that was available from or at 23 Oct 2019 was transcribed and may be accessed here: Lovelock and Loveluck Deaths from 2007 - 2018 (Note that there are only two Loveluck deaths recorded as at 23 Oct 2019). Where the deceased left a Will there is a link to our page of extractions from the UK Find a Will website.

Deaths 2007 - 2019 (GRO Online):

In November 2019 the UK General Record Office added information on deaths up to a point in that year to their Online Index of Deaths. This is differently detailed to the information referred to in the previous paragraph so all of those entries are duplicated to ensure as complete a picture as possible. This additional data may be accessed here: Additional General Record Office data for deaths in 2007-2019

FreeBMD: To quote from the FreeBMD Web site: "FreeBMD is an ongoing project, the aim of which is to transcribe the Civil Registration index of births, marriages and deaths for England and Wales, and to provide free Internet access to the transcribed records." Since the records referred to at the head of this section that Malcolm and Robert extracted were compiled the amount of data available on the FreeBMD Web site has increased enormously, and is continually evolvingSo if you don't find what you're looking for in those files, you should try FreeBMD itself. In addition, a large number of digital images of the GRO indexes are available on the Free BMD site.

Currently, Free BMD record coverage is incomplete in a very few places from 1975 onwards, although images and data for most births, marriages and deaths are available up to Oct-Dec 1983 (Free BMD's original planned end-date). From 1984 to 1992 there are 46 Lovelock births in 1984, 33 Lovelock marriages in 1984, 40 in 1985, 35 Lovelock deaths in 1985, one Loveluck birth in 1984, one Loveluck marriage in each of 1984 and 1985, and two Loveluck deaths in 1985 but no other data as at 6 Jan 2020.

Others: Indexes of GRO records for various periods are also available on the Ancestry subscription web site, on the familyrelatives pay-per-view site, or on the Findmypast website on either a subscription or pay-per-view basis.
