Church Recorders

Making a Church Record.

Volunteers typically work in teams of two or three usually meeting for a couple of hours weekly or monthly. It is meticulous work and every aspect of a church is documented - Memorials, Metalwork, Stonework, Woodwork, Textiles, Paintings, Library and Windows. The information, together with photographs and illustrations, is then compiled according to an established format. Once completed the record is given to the Parish of the church concerned; four other copies are distributed to the Diocese (for forwarding to the local County Record Office); Victoria & Albert Museum; National Monuments Centre and the Library of the Cathedrals and Church Buildings Division.
