Berkshire churches in the Genuki Church Database

The Genuki Church Database will eventually list all places of worship in the UK and Ireland.  I am responsible for those in Berkshire.  To date, I have entered all the Berkshire churches I have been able to find, currently about 770.  If you enter a place name into the search field, you will get a list of churches in the area.  Alternatively, you can scroll down this alphabetic list of the Berkshire churches.  Click on each church name to display the Church Page.  The page does not contain a lot of data, but if you click on the name of the church, you will be taken to the church's own website (or, where none exists, to another one) which usually does have something useful.  The map links can be useful, particularly to Oldmaps which shows the church location in the past. If I have found other information, I have added it to the related Parish page, which is linked from the top of Church Page. For general information about churches in Berkshire, see Church History.  In the context of this database, Church means any place of worship, i.e. church, chapel, synagogue, temple, etc.  

How you can help:  All constructive comments are encouraged, including:  missing churches, additional or corrected information about churches already listed, closed churches, location of church records and registers (if not held by the BRO or is not available from Berkshire FHS).  

The table below lists information that I know is missing and would welcome your help.

To send your information: Just click on the "Find help, report problems, or contribute information" link at the bottom of the related Church Page (or on this page) and complete the message form.

How to advise an exact location:  Visit Streetmap and find the location using the search field.  (1) Use the Zoom Control to zoom in to the 1:2500 scale.  (2) Click on the "Move Arrow" icon near the bottom right of your screen and then (3) on the exact location on the map.  (4) Copy the whole link in the "Link to this map" field and send it to me, as described above. See screen dump. Alternatively: on the Church Page, click on the "this church marked on a Google map" link and move the flag to the correct location.  Click on either the "approximately at ..." or "exactly at ..." link and complete the message form.
