We are happy to look up details from these registers for you on request.

Also if you follow this link you can access the 1812-1880 baptisms for Docking (Docking St Mary, Docking Primitive Methodist Circuit and Docking Workhouse) on the Norfolk Baptism Project website.

Do you have ancestors buried in Docking churchyard and are not sure where they are? then we may be able to help you locate them. We have a graveyard plan and index for Docking which has more than 1,000 names recorded including a list of those who are buried in unmarked graves.

If you’re not able to visit our room during normal opening hours, or if we can’t help you on the day, we can arrange a more convenient time for you to view the records and help you in your search.

We are keen to collect family trees relevant to Docking to help others tracing their ancestors. If you would like to donate a copy of your family tree to the Heritage Room please send a hard copy or an FTM file attachment or wps document by email.
