Try the site that Nancy gave you, there is a link to "Request for Batch
Numbers" that Christopher did not mention. If you do not find the parish
you require on the list then post a request and someone will respond in
due course. Usually me!
Ginnie has been compiling this list of batch numbers to help people that
have problems finding them. This is an ongoing task.
I have a copy of the Parish & Vital Records List, May '98 edition on
fiche and do lookups for those that need help. There are 6 microfiche
of 270 pages each and approx. 50 numbers per page to cover England
Having said that, all parishes are not included and even for those that
there are batch numbers for are not necessarily complete.ie. some years
are missing. The Parish & Vital Records List gives the years covered by
each batch number.
If I can be of help let me know.
