Family history


Sometimes we are contacted by people who are researching their family history asking if we can help them.  

Whilst we are happy to help if we can (please be aware that their is a statutory charge for searching registers), often we are unable to help, as historical registers (unless kept under strict conditions to preserve them), have to be sent to the diocesan records office.
