Chester Diocese, 1844-1940

Reference Code: GBR/0012/MS Add.8293/E/9
Scope and Contents From the Series:

Most of this is correspondence with and about the livings, arranged by parish within dioceses. Note that these are the modern dioceses, which were not necessarily the ones that the living was in when it was first acquired. There is some overlap with the material in section F. The same numbers have been given for each diocese, thus E/2 and F/2 refer to the diocese of Bath and Wells.

Dates: 1844-1940
Conditions Governing Access: From the Fonds: Access to the deposited records is unrestricted, and use may be made of them in publications without reference to the Trustees. Formal permission should, however, be sought for any full-length publication of material derived from them.
