Archive of Church Records
At St James’s 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
Note that a fire in 1967 at St James’s resulted in some of our records being destroyed; our archives are as complete as possible, and most certainly complete since 1967.
If you would like information from our records, please contact Aleksandra Tomaszewska, our Parish Administrator via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
(Please note that searches in our archives will incur a statutory fee, set by the Church of England and ratified by Parliament. The fee for 2022 is £32 per search, including a written certificate.)
