    All the data provided through these pages has been compiled and transcribed by volunteers. OnLine Parish Clerks have often become involved in their particular parish because of their interest in the town or village where their ancestors lived. While some may live in their chosen parish, many do not, indeed many live in other Countries. All OnLine Parish Clerks welcome enquiries and will do their best to help, but please remember their time will always be limited, and that many will be busy transcribing records for their chosen parish.
