CORNWALL ONLINE PARISH CLERKS - helping bring the past alive


*this list conforms to that held by the Cornwall Record Office; some ancient parishes may not be included.

N.B. All our Online Parish Clerks are volunteers who answer email enquiries in their spare time, without charge.

  • Saints are listed under their names, not as St. e.g. Anthony in Meneage, St.
  • Click on the parish name to be taken to a page which shows the OPC's email address, a link to his/her parish website (if one exists) and a variety of other information, often including photographs, lists of his/her look-up resources and links to maps and transcribed documents.
  • Many of the Parish pages contain links to transcribed historical documents. For similar resources which cover several parishes, click here.


Most parishes now have volunteer OPCs but, if you would like to help in any way, please contact our coordinator, Diane Donohue, by email.
