Hyderabad State, also referred to as the Nizam's Dominions, was the largest of the Princely states. Not formally a part of British India, the mainly Hindu state was ruled by a series of hereditary Muslim princes called 'Nizam' (from Nizam-ul-Mulk - Administrator of the Realm [1]) from 1724 to September 1948 when it was forcibly integrated into the Indian Union and the Nizam deposed.

The state had borders with the Madras Presidency to the south, the Bombay Presidency to the west and Berar and the Central Provinces to the north. Its capital was the city of Hyderabad: immediately to the capital's north lay Secunderabad, a city in its own right and a military cantonment under direct British rule. Collectively, the two were often referred to as the 'Twin Cities'.

There were also other military cantonment under direct British rule. Records of baptisms, marriages and burials which occurred in the cantonments under British rule, will be found in the usual sources. At least for some periods these cantonments were regarded as part of the Madras Presidency.
