Church History

It was founded in 1595. It closed in 1981.
Transcripts/indexes in progress

Work on transcripts and indexes start off with good intentions, but circumstances can arise which mean that the task is larger than first envisaged, or other tasks require the trancribers time. So there is no guarantee that publication will always take place or that initially envisaged target dates will be met.

The work being undertaken is not being done as part of GENUKI, so it will not be available for online research as part of this site. This does not of course preclude it being made available in this way elsewhere. The final publication medium will be determined by the trancriber.



Church Records

Whilst every effort has been made to record exact details of record office and library holdings you are recommended to check with them before visiting to ensure that they do hold the records and years you wish to examine. Similarly check with transcript publishers to ensure they cover the records and years you require before making a purchase.
