Blackburn with Darwen (just to the north of Greater Manchester), like Bolton, has a rich industrial history much of it based in cotton and textiles and associated industries. The registers, particularly in the 19th century, reflect the privations of the poor working classes with extremely high infant and child mortality rates and short life expectancy for adults. The Blackburn with Darwen collection comprises nearly 1 million records for 350,000 burials and cremations since the 1850's.
