The records that we have, or are in the process of, transcribing and making available as indices, essentially cover the period 1754 to 1916, although we do have entries before and after these core dates. Church records are taken from Church of England (CofE) Parish registers and Non-Conformist (NC) registers and contain records from other religions outside of the Church of England.  The transcriptions are as accurate as we can make them, but we are aware of the problems caused by illegible handwriting, phonetic spellings, missing pages and non-deposited registers. We have used primary sources throughout, but we suggest that, should you identify an entry of interest, you confirm it by reference to the original records.  We aim to aid your research, not mislead you; accuracy is everything.
