Clergy are not required to conduct searches on behalf of researchers, but we are happy to make registers available for viewing and will seek to help wherever possible. Due to the geography of the parish, please understand group records are not all immediately available to clergy.
If you are making the search yourself you need to contact the clergy to make an appointment and confirm that appointment by telephone before travelling. Please understand the priority of clergy is the ongoing work of the parish not historical research. Occasionally pastoral emergencies may also cause the last minute cancellation of your appointment.
The clergy are required to supervise your search and there is a fee for this activity.
