Prestatyn Parish Records

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. Following a decision by the Church in Wales to group parish collections by deanery, the records of Prestatyn were transferred from Flintshire Record Office to Denbighshire Record Office in June 2009.

The new parish of Prestatyn was created on the 1st August 1860, from the townships of Prestatyn and Nant, in the parish of Meliden, and part of the township of Gronant in the parish of Llanasa.
