Our collections

Faith records

The Old ChurchWe hold records of Church of England (Anglican) parishes and many non-conformist churches, including methodist and baptist chapels.

Faith records include:

  • registers of baptisms, marriages and burials
  • early poor relief and churchwardens' accounts
  • minutes of church meetings
  • records relating to church buildings and property
  • parish magazines
  • photographs.

Most registers of baptisms, marriages, and burials are on microfilm or microfiche. Please contact us in advance to book a microfilm reader or microfiche reader.

The archive catalogues of our churches and chapels are not currently online, so please contact us for further information.
