Ordering a Baptism Record

Gloucestershire Archives holds baptism registers for churches in the Diocese of Gloucester. We can issue certified copies of 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.

You can order a baptism certificate online

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.
