Tracing ancestry is a very interesting and rewarding activity. To help those with forebears who may have been baptised, married, or buried in St John's we have included below details of the Registers we hold and how to access them, and also where the archived Registers can be searched.
We have also included, on the website, a full list of those people buried in St John's Churchyard from its first use in 1861, to 2010; and the names of villagers killed in the two World Wars. Details can be found by clicking the various links below. For a specific surname, use the search facility at the bottom of the page.
Whilst every effort has been made to ensure accuracy during transcription, the reader is recommended to check the actual Registers (see below for locations) before acting on any information contained in the transcriptions.
