Do you have any ancestors from Rickinghall?
The parish holds some registers of baptism, marriage and burial for both Rickinghall Inferior and Rickinghall Superior. We have also surveyed the inferior churchyard, transcribed memorial inscriptions (MIs) and taken photographs of many of the gravestones. Details of some 2,700 records can be found under the 'Parish Registers ' tab.
You may purchase transcriptions of the registers and MIs together with photographs of some of the grave stones. Proceeds will go towards the upkeep of the churchyard.
