Parish records will give names, dates and places in similar fashion to the GRO birth, marriage and death records, but the level of detail within a parish record depends largely on what was recorded on the original. Most parish records do not include accompanying images. Information in earlier registers can differ with some recording baptisms, marriages and burials together on the page, some keeping them separate. Some can be more informative than others, depending almost at whim on what the vicar chose to note down. They can, however, be a very valuable key documents that unlock the history of your family to a time you may not have thought it was possible to reach when you originally began to trace your family line.
