However before we can give you any information you must contact the Chancellery of the Diocese,
if the information you are seeking is less than 100 years old.


All records held by the parish less than 100 years old are subject to the Data Protection Act. You will need to provide proof of identity (passport or drivers licence) if you are seeking information concerning yourself. If you are seeking information regarding another person you will need a letter of permission from that person as well as proof of your own identity.

A search will be done by our volunteers. It may take some time to respond to your request. Please be patient. Please note, if you don't have the precise year for an enquiry, we can only do a search within 2 years of your estimated date.
