This Town and Parish List covers all the parishes within the historic county of Gloucestershire. GENUKI aims to help people find information and the parishes are therefore defined largely as those that existed in the mid 19th Century. The list is also based on how the records in the principal record offices (Gloucestershire and Bristol) are organised.
