Family History

Most records held in our churches are comparatively recent – the older ones have been given to the Norfolk Records Office for safekeeping.  The table below shows what records are available there.

We do have some older records for Brunstead and East Ruston, and these are currently being transcribed.
Please follow this link for transcribed baptism records for Brunstead, 1813-1857 so far.  More will be added as progress is made.

A graveyard plan for St Mary's churchyard in Stalham and the churchyard extension on Brumstead Road was commissioned by the Women's Institute in 2003.   A copy is available here in pdf format. 

Graveyard plans have also been compiled for Ingham and Sutton.  For more information about them, please contact us.
