Ordering a Baptism Record
Gloucestershire Archives holds baptism registers for churches in the Diocese of Gloucester. We can issue baptism certificates from the registers that we hold.
To see if we hold the register which covers the baptism you need, please check our parish register guide, which is available here.
Baptism certificates cost £28 (plus £1 postage). This is a nationally set price.
To order a certificate please , including the following information:
· the name of the child (at the time of the baptism),
· the name of the parents,
· the church where the baptism took place
· the date of the baptism. If you do not know the exact date please estimate, e.g. a range of months or year.
We will search up to one year in one register for the correct entry for free.
If you do not know where or when the baptism took place, you will need to visit the archives to look through the registers. Information about visiting the archives can be found here. If you are unable to visit, please contact us for further information.
