Family History Information

Family History Information . . .


We are aware that for many people, research into their family’s history is an absorbing interest. Each of our churches holds current registers for Baptisms, Weddings and Burials, and the earlier records can be consulted at the Essex Records Office (E.R.O.) in Wharf Road, Chelmsford www.essexcc.gov.uk/ero

You are respectfully reminded that there is a statutory fee payable for certain searches in church registers within the parish:-
