About the Project

The Church History Project aims to:

establish a database of information on the 300+ churches and 100+ former churches and sites and to provide internet web pages for wider circulation

help parishes appreciate their church buildings and provide booklets and information for visitors and tourists

provide historic information to Church Architects, Archaeologists and Conservators to enable them to make proposals on maintenance and improvement of our churches in a more informed way

promote church buildings as resources for schools and colleges

enable family historians to seek out information by ensuring that records are properly protected and preserved

If you would like to help with the project, then please contact the Administrator, Janice Avery.

We regret that we are unable to answer queries regarding personal research, family history, etc, or to check on or provide information from parish registers, gravestones, monuments, or any other sources, as we do not hold information other than what is on this site. For this you might find the Ancestry section of the Visit Nottinghamshire website useful.
