Parish Registers:  In 1923 the Shropshire Parish Register Society (founded in 1897) amalgamated with the Shropshire Archaeological Society, and the work of publishing the county’s parish registers was continued.  After a lapse that work has been resumed, and the most recent achievement has been the publication of the Bishop’s Castle register.  Work continues on other parishes, and the Society’s as yet unpublished transcripts up to 1900 have been digitized and are available online on the Find My Past website. The registers after 1900 (and also those before) are available at Shropshire Archives.

Some printed parish registers are still available for sale from the Society – please see attached list: Parish Registers available for purchase.  For more details and to order, please contact our Publications Secretary.
