The documents attached are a transcription of the records of Tunstall Baptist Church  in Suffolk, they consist of 3 separate spreadsheets.

 THE MEMBERS LIST
Commencing in 1805, which was the Chapels foundation, the last entry is dated 1862.The 1st sheet in this list is headed .............. "Names of Members & Number on February 22nd 1842"
The majority of the names have a line through them probably as they died or left.

THE BIRTH LIST
 "Account of Registers of Births at the Chapel at Tunstall" 
These are BIRTH dates & not baptism's also no mother's maiden name is given. this list is from 1805-1837

THE DEATHS LIST
 "Account of Deaths Tunstall Chapel"
 A list of basic epitaphs of 2 or 3 lines, which I have tabulated, again dates are 1805-1837.

I have used the spreadsheet format to make it easier to reform it in whatever sequence is convenient to the researcher. Spelling of place names are as shown in original, sometimes with correct spelling in brackets, other information in bracket's may be alternative possibility's if it's not clear it could also be additional data shown in the records, it should be obvious which it is. Question marks after a letter, number name or word indicate an entry that is not clear.The  Mem. column indicates whether a member of this Church or not. B.B. = Base Born


Parishes & towns listed that attendants came from:-
Aldeburgh;  Benhall; Blaxhall; Boyton; Butley; Campsey Ash; Capel St. Andrews; Chillesford; Eyke; Farnham; Friston; Hacheston; Iken; Melton; Orford; Parham; Rendlesham; Shottisham; Snape; Sudbourn; Sweffling; Tunstall; Wantisden; Wickham Market & Woodbridge plus entry's for Ipswich; Colchester, & Brantree in Essex and Rottingdane,Sussex
