Archive of Baptisms in the Parish of Hornchurch

We have been transcribing the Baptism records of the Parish so that they can be made available for online viewing. Our records start in 1948 and continue to the present day. However this is a time consuming exercise and so it will be sometime before all the records are available to view.

We have added 1950 baptism records to those available to view. More to follow as soon as they are transcribed.

It is difficult to read some entries in the registers and therefore if there are any items which have been incorrectly transcribed, do let the Parish Office know (details on the contact us page).

If you wish to view any Baptism records before 1948, these are available at the Essex Record Centre in Chelmsford or online at

The Parish Office can provide a photocopy of the actual entry in our register. This service currently costs £28.00 (for 2017).
