Church of the Ascension, Lower Broughton
Lower Broughton is undergoing yet another redevelopment cycle - which means some parts of the parish have been rebuilt, some have been demolished and left (at the moment our church is in the middle of a street grid without houses!), some parts have fought off the redevelopment and are currently enjoying a reprieve. These are interesting times in Lower Broughton to say the least. Who knows where we're going to be in five or even ten years time!

For Genealogical Enquiries the local Diocesan Record Office is:
There records and archives of local historical interest at the Salford Museum on Salford Crescent. These are very good, especially for photographic and local historical information.
However, the main archive located at the Central Library, St Peter's Square, Manchester (beside the Town Hall) is probably the best place for detailed records such as Parish Registers and the like.
The Ascension does not maintian records beyond the most recent on site.
