The 16,500 parish churches in the Church of England as well as the many hundreds of parish churches in Wales, Scotland and Ireland, are required by law to maintain records of all services held and, in separate registers, the details of all baptisms, confirmations and the calling of banns of marriage. These records are inspected by diocesan authorities on a regular basis and they often become the primary documents in much family research. Canterbury Press is pleased to offer this series of parish registers which have been developed after consultation with the Legal Office of the Church of England. With an attractive contemporary design, page layouts that make the keeping of accurate records simple and straightforward, and paper of archive quality, this range offers excellent value and quality.
