History

churchyardIf you are researching your family history, you might want to know about relatives who lived here in Hertford Heath.
Registers of Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals exist going back to 1863, but only the current parish registers are held at Holy Trinity. All previous registers have been deposited in the Hertfordshire Archives and Local Studies Service, in County Hall, Pegs Lane, Hertford. Anyone can use this service and there is no charge for consulting records.
All the Monumental inscriptions in the churchyard have been transcribed and there is a booklet available from the Hertfordshire Family History Society.
