For many people, researching their family's history is an absorbing and fascinating interest, and we at St. Giles' are happy to do all we can to help you in your search. All the current registers are held in the church.
Many of our older registers are now held in the Essex Records Office, but one of our churchwardens has painstakingly recorded the details of these registers, and these are held in the church and can be accessed by arrangement with her. Alternatively these earlier records can be consulted at the Essex Records Office in Wharf Road, Chelmsford www.essexcc.gov.uk/ero
You are respectfully reminded that there is a statutory fee payable for certain searches in church registers within the parish, and these can be found by visiting: www.cofe.anglican.org/lifeevents/ministry/workofmindiv/dracsc/tableparochialfees2008.doc
For further information on information held at St. Giles' please contact Mrs. Allen on 01621 855447, and she will be delighted to help you.
