A good few of the parishes listed show the Rectors over the years, so I found it helpful when I couldnt read the name of the vicar on documents!

Worth a visit to see if there are plans for repairs, enlargements etc for churches your relatives frequented. Jan ;)


GENUKI Church database

Quote
The GENUKI church database originated as one containing the approximate location of the parishes that existed around 1837. Since then the database has had new fields added to contain additional information, many more churches have been added (in some areas), and more precise locations added where known.
Quote from: stonechat
Genuki has a nice church database

Enter your town, and it will produce a list of churches, with distances

This is a free genealogy resource that contains an index of the names and relationships that appear on grave monuments. This information is of especial interest to anyone reseaching their family history as information on tombstones is rarely listed and it is often hard to find a grave.

Our church website now has over 2,300 pages, containing over twenty eight thousand photographs of 185 mostly Wiltshire churches.   We have recorded every name that appears on every photograph and you can view the alphabetical indexes which will guide you to the relevant page.

There's a great site run by Duncan and Mandy Ball. Principally Wiltshire churches and gravestones, but there are other counties, so it's worth a look.
The name search is a must .......have a look you might be lucky.

The Churches of Britain and Ireland
http://www.churches-uk-ireland.org/
Quote from: website
The ultimate aim is to have at least one photo of every existing church in England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, the Isle of Man, and the Channel Islands, and where possible, photos or artwork of churches no longer in existence. And the site isn't restricted to the historic parish churches - photos of the "churches" of all religions, denominations and sects are welcome.

There are currently about 15,800 churches on the web-site, ...

Quote from: Marmaduke 123
There are photographs of over 10,000 churches in the UK and Ireland. Well worth a look to see the churches where your ancestors were baptised, married or buried.
