Church and cemetery records

City of Westminster Archives Centre is the Diocesan Record Office for south Westminster, and most Anglican parish registers for the area south of Oxford Street have been deposited here.

We also provide access to original registers or transcripts of some non-conformist churches.

From the late 1850s onwards, most London burials took place in cemeteries rather than church burial grounds. We hold registers for Hanwell, St Marylebone, Mill Hill and Willesden Lane cemeteries. For covering dates, see the Cemetery registers section. 

Where possible, access to our registers is provided on microfilm to help preserve the original books.
