Search the Parish Register Guide

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.

Key: C = Christenings / M = Marriages / B = Burials / T & I = Transcripts and Indexes / MIs = Monumental inscriptions / IGI = International Genealogical Index
