The Church of the Holy Cross, Avening

Church Records

Parish records for Avening church date back to 1557 and the following are available to search at Gloucester Archives:

Baptism: 1557-1875
Marriages: 1557-1893
Burials: 1557-1992

The roll of honour on the War Memorial in the church is detailed below. Our archivist has researched these casualties and compiled a short history of each. He has also extracted details of Avening residents from the 1841-1911 censuses. With a little help from Ann Brick, transcriptions of the baptism, marriage and burial registers back to 1557 are now complete.
