A Comprehensive List of Birmingham Parishes and ChapelsEdit This Page

From FamilySearch Wiki

Return to the Warwickshire Parishes page.

Prior to 1715, Birmingham had only one ancient parish. Later, four additional parishes were built. The following list of churches comprise a comprehensive list of the Greater Birmingham parishes and churches (mostly) prior to the year 1851. These include:

  • Birmingham St. Luke - 1842 - see also St Asaph & St David

An asterisk (*) = a parish church (see Lewis' Topographical Dictionary of England & Wales, 1848 edition)

The following townships and hamlets are also considered as part of Greater Birmingham. Each one is listed here because each one possesses one or more chapels called chapelries and therefore must be considered as part of "Birmingham" since they officially lie within Birmingham's ancient parish boundaries:

  • Blackwell - 1856 (contact the Warwick Record Office or the Warwickshire Online Parish Clerk project)
