Well done, Roy, that's well spotted. At the moment, the registers on line are a shadow of the wealth of records which were snatched from under our noses, but as you say maybe it's the start of a full reinstatement.
Incidentally I came across the following interesting snippet appended by the vicar of St Erth to the marriage of John Williams and Sarah Ann Grenfell 30 June 1872 "Sarah Ann Grenfell was a person who had been married without religious rites at a registry office - and was divorced in a civil court - I therefore married her in Church to John Williams, as her first so called marriage had not received the sanction of the Church". I'd always thought that divorce was rare in those days and only for the upper classes.

There have been some more changes to the FamilySearch site.
Having just become used to finding the Cornwall and other UK records under 'British Isles' the link has been changed yet again!
There is now a link called 'United Kingdom and Ireland' under which you will find all the records that were, until yesterday, found under 'British Isles'.
But there is yet another change! Although the 'Go To Previous Site' button is currently still available you can now access the 'International Genealogical Index (IGI)' via the 'United Kingdom and Ireland' link. (Very last option)
You can also access the IGI from within the 'United States' link. In fact it appears that a link to IGI has been placed in all the Regional Collections.
I see FamilySearch has today added/updated a collection that may be relevant to Cornish researchers:
England, Plymouth and West Devon, Parish Registers, 1538-1912
Worth having but it's not really surprising that this is a filtered version of the information you have to pay for on the subscription site Findmypast. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to provide precise parish information any more than you can get by searching the index on Findmypast, which you can do free of charge.
