Researching your family history

If you are one of the many people who are researching your family history, one of the places you will find information is on baptism and marriage records.

Whilst we are very happy to assist you in your enquiry, please note that the church does not hold all records.  There is also a fee involved, according to those set by the Church of England annually.
