Parish Registers


This guide lists available baptism, banns, marriage or burial registers for Church of England parishes in the diocese of Durham and those parishes in the diocese of Ripon which are in the county of Durham, including covering dates and the catalogue references. The dates given are those of the earliest and most recent documents (please do not assume that all four types of register exist for the whole period). Where no dates are present in this list, no registers are held in the Record Office and information concerning the registers should be sought from the incumbent.
