NADFAS Church Records a new online resource

For almost 40 years NADFAS Church Recorders have been producing complete records of the contents of places of worship of all denominations. Over 1650 churches have been recorded and so far more than1300 have been indexed. Now we are pleased to announce a new resource - the Church Records Online Index.

The Online Index, which is free to access, will be of particular value to academics and architects, church personnel and researchers as well as those investigating their family history. Insurance companies and the police also make use of the Index when tracking items that have been misappropriated.

The Index does not contain text or photographs from the Records themselves but acts as a signpost to the contents of UK churches which have been recorded by NADFAS. After initial consultation of the index further research can be undertaken by studying the relevant printed copy of the Church Record.

It facilitates searches by diocese, church, type of item, or dedication. The information available includes the names of artists, manufacturers and retailers, the names of donors and of those commemorated as well as subjects of stained glass and wall paintings. However items of silver, gold or other precious materials are not included.

NADFAS House, 8 Guilford Street, London WC1N 1DA
