    Register for clergy??

    I'm transcribing some burial registers and it has differing ministers whether they are Methodist/baptist/Catholic etc.. is there a database or clergy that you can search/goto to see when a specific person/minister served from year to year?

    thank you.

    I know there used to be an Anglican Clergy list published in book form very year. Not sure if it will help but try here https://theclergydatabase.org.uk/.

    For methodists try Cliff College in Calver near Cheterfield. I know they do hold some records but from memory visiting is by appointment. I have been but it must be over 20 years ago!

      ancestry has some older versions (up to 1932) of Crockfords which covers Church of England Clergy. https://www.ancestry.co.uk/search/collections/1548/

              You could pay for a crockfords sub!

              Also try newspapers, my mum wrote an article for the magazine about a vicar, much if it based on what she found in the newspapers. If a marriage/death is reported, the celebrants' name is often mentioned so that might give some clues or they might be mentioned in parish meetings etc..

                  does that just cover one particular flavour of minister though or does it list all of 'em?

                  That may be very helpful Christine thank you.. some of the ministers names are quite hard to read, though once you get your eye in... you can have a stab at it!

                  though good old google does come up good with some of the names

                    Crockfords just covers Anglican clergy in England, Wales and Scotland.

                      For Church of Scotland ministers from the Reformation onwards you need Fasti Ecclesiae Scoticanae. Ancestry has coverage from 1560-1866 https://www.ancestry.co.uk/search/collections/1923/

                      Here’s a link to a thread on the Talking Scot forum which contains links to more up to date editions http://talkingscot.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=16302
