A Brief History of the Society - now in existence for 118 years
The Society held it's inaugural meeting on 16 January
1901 and issued its first publication in 1902. At
first the registers were issued in paper-backed parts of
about fifty-sixty pages each as they were completed by
the transcribers. Using this method, for the first few
years they were able to produce several registers a year.
In 118 years we have published 155 Registers - 21 of them in the last 8 years.
The Society nevertheless has an enviable record in the field of publication of parish registers and it is now one of the few in existence still regularly printing parish registers in book form. We are making a special appeal for new members to support us in our work and are particularly looking for members who would be interested in undertaking some transcribing. The aim of the Society is to print volumes of registers as often as funds allow and we can find the skilled volunteers to do the transcribing. Each member receives a free copy of a register as soon as it is published. To join the SPRS please click on JOINING US OR you can subscribe or renew ONLINE BY PayPal. If you would be interested in helping us with transcribing, please contact the Chair or Secretary,their contact details are below.
