Archive of Church Records

We have records of baptisms, weddings and burials from the last several decades:

  • Baptisms (christenings) since October 1951
  • Weddings since March 1955
  • Burials in St James’s Churchyard since May 1957

(St James’s suffered a fire in 1967, and as a result some of our records were destroyed; our archives are as complete as possible, and most certainly complete since 1967.)

If you would like information from our records, please contact Carole Harvey, our Parish Administrator, on 020 8804 3823 or email:

(Please note that searches in our archives will incur a statutory fee, set by the Church of England and ratified by Parliament.)

What I’m looking for pre-dates this—what do I do?
