Mid Norfolk FHS Publications List;

(from 1st September 2021)

We do not sell printed copies of Parish Registers and Memorial Inscriptions
any more, we now have difficulty in getting the printers to print single copies
to order and our Society does not have the space or funds to hold any stock.
Therefore, we decided to sell the computer files, (in PDF format) for £4 each.

Our Memorial Inscriptions books can now be purchased
(in PDF format) from the website; ParishChest.com
