A guide to genealogy in Saltney, with information on where to find birth, baptism, marriage, death and burial records; census records; wills; cemeteries; maps; etc.

Saltney is a small town and community on the Dee Estuary in Flintshire, Wales and sits immediately on the border with England, with parts of the community on both sides! The whole of Saltney is in the English ecclesiastical parish of Lache-with-Saltney.


The name is derived from the former salt marshes on which it is built, lying on the River Dee. The Wales/England border runs down the middle of Boundary Lane in Saltney, the only urban street in England or Wales where this happens.

Once the terminus of Sir John Glynne's Canal, Higher Saltney more commonly known by local people as "Top Saltney" is in Chester, Cheshire, England, with the Welsh part of the community known more specifically as Saltney Town.
