Church records held

Registers for Anglican churches within the present-day Birmingham Diocese are held here. These include registers of churches which no longer exist and those of churches which were formerly in Warwickshire, Staffordshire and Worcestershire, such as Aston, Handsworth and Kings Norton.

Details of many of the registers held here can be found in our online catalogue

Microfilmed registers

A large number of pre-20th century registers have been microfilmed.

To reserve a reader to view the microfilmed copies:

Many of the microfilmed registers are also now available on the Ancestry and Ancestry Institution websites. These are both available free of charge on computers in Birmingham libraries. Some other library authorities may also provide this facility.

Registers that have not been microfilmed may be available to view in their original format. These will be served by appointment in the Wolfson Centre for Archival Research on level 4 of the Library of Birmingham.
