Requesting a copy of a sacramental record

From time to time, people find it necessary to request a copy of a certificate of Baptism, or a record of their Confirmation or Marriage in church.

The Data Protection Act restricts access to our Sacramental registers and the information they contain. Consequently all requests for certificates must be made in writing and signed by the applicant namely, the person named in the register – for instance, the person who was baptised, confirmed or married, or, in the case of someone still under the age of 16, their parent or guardian.

We are unable to accept requests for certificates by phone or email.

Thank you for your understanding.
