Parish Records

We are often contacted by people researching their family history who are looking for parish records in one of our churches.  We are more than happy to help but unfortunately only keep the current records of baptisms, marriages and funerals in church. 


For any previous records please contact the Hampshire County Archive.  This is a fantastic resource where all archives are kept, not just church records.  They have an online catalogue as well as housing all the original documents.  You are able to visit and see the documents themselves, or just gather the information from their website.  Their website is http://www3.hants.gov.uk/archives.htm or you can contact them by telephone on 01962 846154


The gravestones in St Mary's, Kingsclere were in the main removed from the churchyard during the 1960's and placed around the church.  These were all catalogued at the time, and have recently been entered into a spreadsheet so those researching have easy access to the details.  Click here to view the spreadsheet
