Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
The county of Flintshire falls within the Diocese of St Asaph and consists of over seventy ecclesiastical parishes. The records of individual ecclesiastical parishes in Flintshire 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.
Records of individual parishes are arranged into the following: Incumbent and Benefice; Parish Administration (Ecclesiastical and Civil); Parish Charities; Parochial School; Statutory Deposits; and Miscellaneous.

Records of some parishes deposited at Flintshire Record Office have been transferred to Denbighshire Record Office on 02/07/2009. This was done in accordance with a directive from the Depositors, the Church in Wales, whereby they wished that places of deposit for parish records should now reflect the locations of parishes within current deanery boundaries.
Further accruals are expected
