Parish Churches, Registry offices and similar Records - index

There are many Churches in the Bann Valley, some still in use, some are ruined. Not all of the churches have records. Not all the records have yet been transcribed. But we will add records here as they become available.

Civil registration started in 1865, and wasn't completely applied for a few years, so some people weren't registered even after that. However, lots of the churches kept record before then, though of course earlier records are 'patchy'.

The records

The Church records can grow indefinitely: I am adding records as and when I am supplied them by list members. Many of the recent additions are straight emails, extracted from the Bann Vallley mailing list and put into position for later sorting - so they can be patchy.

In order that you can view them before I sort them, this 'index' page is at - note the contents.html rather than the more usual index.html. This is so that a link to will work and will give you a directory viewer where you may browse and search the work in progress!

The Churches

This list is growing and, myself not being resident in the area, is based on guesswork and information gleaned, so is inaccurate and incomplete. Additions and corrections are welcome. So too is more information to help us properly locate each church. Name? Parish? Map reference?

The list also includes registry offices, cemetaries and other places where such records may exist.

Gradually, we are building up data (with notes and an index) for each church. Some records are near complete, others are extracts only. Click on the links for the index of available records.

The date is new (12th June 2008) and will indicate recent changes and additions.

There are some books on some of these churches: see our book list index page.
