Genealogy and historical searches

Being an ancient church and churchyard, St John's receives frequent requests from genealogists and historians for searches through the registers and records, and even for physical searches through the churchyard.

As well as being an ancient buidling and site, we are also a very busy parish church in a London suburb. Sadly, there simply isn't time for the clergy or Ministry Team to make these searches.

If you require a search of registers or records, on your request and at your expense, we will pay our administrator to make the extra time to do this. We will also charge the search fee recommended by the Archbishops Council.

If you would like us to make use of this service, please email me at
