Church Registers

Following recent changes (May 2021), introduced by the Government, relating to how marriages are recorded all Marriage Registers in the Edgemoor Group have been deposited with the Diocese. Duplicate Marraige Registers have been deposited with the North Devon Records Office at Barnstaple Library.   

Anyone who is seeking historical records, the link for the North Devon Records Office is  https://swheritage.org.uk/devon-archives/visit/north-devon-records-office/  

Applications for new duplicate certificates will have to be made to the Devon Registration Service.  Their link is https://www.devon.gov.uk/registrationservice/certificates/apply-for-a-copy-certificate   

Baptism, Funeral and current Marriage records will continue to be held at the various churches and any search requests can begin there as usual.
