Of all the
enquiries we get at the Ludham Archive, questions about
tracing your ancestors back to Ludham are the most common.
We are always glad to help if we can and this is why we
have created this section of our website which we hope you
will find to be a useful resource. Do let us know if you
have any suggestions for things to put in this

Please note that the Parish Records button
takes you to an external website where we do
not control the content.
The Parish Records are a great place to start. Here
you can find records of baptisms, marriages and
There was a time when the Parish Records lived in a
tin chest in the church, but those days are long
gone. Now the Ludham Parish Records are at the
Public Record Office in Norwich, and that is the
place where you must start your search. Until
recently, this meant having to travel to Norwich in
person, but now, thanks to the efforts of many
volunteers, you can search the Parish Records
on-line by using the FreeReg website.
Gravestones are a great resource and a source of all
sorts of useful information. However, not everyone
can make a personal visit. If you would like to know
if your ancestor is buried in the churchyard, we
have added an alphabetical index to this website.
Please remember, this is a list of all the graves
with stones, crosses, mounds and other monuments.
There are other people buried in the churchyard who
have unmarked graves. Not everyone could afford a
stone in the past as they were expensive items.
Once you have found a grave in the index, you can
see a photograph of it in our Graves Photographs
Section. If you need a high resolution photograph,
just send us an e-mail. Details on our Home Page.
We also have details of all the inscriptions on the
stones. These are not currently on-line, so just
send us an e-mail if you need information.

helped many families with their researches. In return,
they have supplied us with lots of family information
which we are now able to pass on. If you have any
information about Ludham family history, please think
about sending it to us so we can include it. We do have
other information which is not on the website so feel free
to ask us if we know anything more.

wanting to sell the Graves Survey. There is absolutely no
need to part with any money, just ask us instead.
