Explore Your History at the Berkshire Record Office
You can use this search to see which Church of England parishes have deposited registers with us, and also what microform or transcript copies we have of those
The guide covers all the parishes in the Church's Archdeaconry of Berkshire, which is roughly the same area as the historic county. The guide also includes parishes in the Archdeaconry of Buckinghamshire which are within the present Berkshire county borders.
If you need to look up something in one of the registers, please contact us.

By 'non parochial', we mean all registers of births/baptism, marriages and deaths/burials that we hold, but that are not Church of England parish registers.
Usually, these registers have come from another faith organisation, but the guide does include registers from workhouses and municipal cemeteries too.
