HISTORY & REGISTERS

Church History and Registers

Old records need careful storage, so parish records no longer in use are held at the Lancashire County Records office in Preston under references PR 2934 and PR 3284. Some church documents are also available to download from the links below.

Church History 

Download the Historical Notes booklet which gives a brief history of St Bartholomew’s, Chipping. Hard copies of the booklet are available for purchase in the church.

Grave records

Churchyard plan (pdf file)

Grave register (Excel file with two tabs, one sorted by name, the other by plot reference). The grave register includes cross references to burial registers if these were available when the grave register was digitised.  

We would like to make more records available electronically in the future, but it is a very time-consuming task. If you would like to help with the project, please contact the Vicar.
