Family history research

Thank you for looking at our website to research your family history.

Whilst we are very happy to look at the records we hold, we would mention that all our formal records for baptisms, marriages and burials from their commencement up until 1981 are held at Warwickshire County Record Office, Priory Park, Cape Road ,Warwick CV34 4JS.

We are aware that all these records have been put on microfilm and some are available at some local libraries.

However we do hold a full register of all tombstones in the churchyard, but please remember that many residents in Ansley were often not very wealthy and therefore they would have probably just had a wooden cross. Also the local stone is sandstone and any headstones carved from sandstone have long since been impossible to read. The oldest discernable stones are slate and they only date from the coming of the canals in the 18th century.

Also there is a full collection of the parish magazines held at both Warwick and in the church dating from 1893. There are also other odd bits of information held at the church.

Whilst we are happy to look into any records on your behalf it would be appreciated if a donation could be made to the church funds for what is a time consuming research.  https://my.give.net/ansleypccgeneralfund 

Or contact via web site  

Please note, that we do retain details of anyone interested, in the hope that should another family member make contact these can be linked.

Ansley's August Jottings

Ansley Jottings – Remember The theme for our Flower Festival this year is ‘Remember’.  Some of you will remember the first flower festival held at St Laurence Church in 1965.  Some villagers may also remember Dr Baker, who used to practice in Ansley in the 1960s, before he emigrated to Australia.  While sorting through hi...
