Kent Parish Churches. GENUKI Parish Database and Locator. Photos of Churches, Kent.

Kent Churches.

Churches were an important part of our ancestors life. When they were baptised, married or in death.  Church registers are among the most important in tracing our ancestors.

For the NW Kent area the Society Gazetteer at North West Kent FHS has photographs and details of 249 Church of England Churches, plus a separate list of Roman Catholic Churches. There are also details of the administration units.

At Kent Churches John Viger's site has photographs and details of churches for all of Kent. Primarily the interior of the churches are shown. There is also information about when built and if restored.

On the same site at Churches are links to photographs of churches in many other counties E.g. Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Essex, Leicestershire, Norfolk, Rutland Churches, Suffolk.

Friends of Kent Churches has photographs of the churches in the Anglican Parishes of the Diocese of Canterbury. It covers such areas as Dover, Thanet, Maidstone,  Romney, Ashford and many more. Though these are outside the NW Kent area our ancestors in Kent came from and moved to many areas of the county.
