Family History

Recent records of baptisms and marriages are maintained in the parish. We can supply copy certificates of recent marriages and of baptisms as required. Details of the fees for register searches and copy certificates can be found here.

Older records are maintained by the local authority. More information can be obtained here.  The Archive Service also provide a helpful Guide to Parish Registers and Bishops’ Transcripts.

Note that Stoke Minster is listed as STOKE ON TRENT, St Peter (the full designation of the church is St Peter ad Vincula). Information may variously be held by Stoke-on-Trent’s Archive Service, Staffordshire Record Office and Lichfield Record Office (the parish is the Diocese of Lichfield).

We wish you well with your family history research.
