    godparents

    hi,
    do modern day church records have the name of godparents recorded?

    i have my baptism certificate and it has name, date, church and who did it nothing on my godparents. I know 1 is my aunt (ive asked her on others and got cant remember but there was 3 others). so if i was to contact the church it took place at would they be able to tell me?

    I think it might be there, definitely worth enquiring. Quite a long time ago (10 years?) we visited the church where my daughter was christened. We had not lived there for years but still knew some people and by chance we met the churchwarden who we knew. He offered to show us the baptism book (we didn't ask!) and I was surprised to see her godparents names in it. So used to looking at historical records that don't have them it really struck me at the time. Daughter is 45 now, to give you an idea of timescale. It was a Church of England church.
