Copying policy

Parish registers are available on microfiche and on Ancestry up to 1916. Please note that we do not hold any original baptism, marriage or burial certificates within our archives; the charges for certificates listed above are for handwritten copies made by an archivist based on the parish register entries. The charges are set by the Church of England and the certificates are usually only used for administrative purposes.

All material must be photocopied by a trained member of our production team. Some original documents such as rolled plans, multi-membrane indentures and documents with hanging wax seals cannot be photocopied for conservation reasons.

If we are unable to photocopy an item for you, in most instances we are able to take digital images of the document and send it to you on a CD-ROM or via online file transfer for a cost of £34 per hour. See our information on enquiries and research for more details.

Before we can produce your copies, please download and complete the Photocopy Order Form including the copyright declaration and return to the address on the form.
