The GENUKI church database is not a complete list of all churches, and for many areas it just contains most parish churches at the start of the 19th century. It is planned that over time many more churches will be added but until then we hope that those it does find are useful.

The distances shown above are in most cases only approximate.This is because the church locations themselves are given as the corner of nearest Km square on the Ordnance Survey map in most cases. Some have been updated to the actual 1/10 Km location, but the majority have not. So use the distances as a guide, not a precise figure.

The information provided has been obtained from a number of sources and although every effort is made to avoid errors, just a few may be present. So if there are any please let us know. [Select the church in the list above, and use the link at the bottom of that page to tell us].

In particular different sources describe churches in different ways and sometimes use different place names. So if there do appear to be duplicates, again let us know. If there are any churches missing then please tell us. The basic information that we need is:

For a more detailed description about providing information please look at the techniques for finding church information.

Other useful information is the founding and closing dates of the church, a picture, if the church has its own website, the name of the road on which it is/was sited, the records that exist and which repository holds them etc. Icons against the churches in the list above are provided to easily see which piece of information is required. Click the individual icons in the list above to report it. The icons are:
