Request a copy of a baptism or marriage certificate

We are designated as a Diocesan Record Office for the Church of England Diocese of Rochester.

Our holdings include parish registers of many Church of England parishes located in the London Borough of Bromley.

We are able to produce certified copy certificates for those baptisms and marriages that can be found within the parish registers that we hold.

Our charges are in line with those set by the Church of England and General Registrar’s Office for certified copy certificates. Please contact us directly to discuss obtaining a copy certificate . Please refer to our fees and charges for details of the current cost for a certified copy certificate. If you require evidence of banns, confirmations and burials, you will also need to contact us directly.
