The index follows the same structure as the volume for parishes within the walls. Names are listed alphabetically by surname. Family members are listed together with the head of the household, and their relationships are indicated in the form in which they are given in the assessments. The location within the manuscripts is given by a two part reference containing a code for the parish before the full stop and the folio after. The parish codes are the same as the catalogue number, and the numbers and locations are also given in full with the map below. Kin ties, particularly between members of nuclear family groups, are thus easily identified. However, non-kin members of households are listed under their own head surname and households cannot therefore be easily reconstructed from the index on its own. (fn. 1)
