Cefnmeiriadog Parish Records

Archive Collection

Scope and Content

The records of individual ecclesiastical parishes include registers of baptisms, marriages and burials, as well as records of the churchwardens and Parochial Church Councils, parish charities, schools, clubs and societies.

Parish records were deposited at the Clwyd Record Office, following an agreement of 1976 between the Church in Wales and the Welsh County Councils.

The new parish of Cefn was formed by an Order in Council on 7 February 1865. It comprised the two Denbighshire townships of Wigfair and Meiriadog, which had until then been in the parish of St. Asaph, Flintshire.
