CANTERBURY CATHEDRAL ARCHIVES - PARISH RECORDS
You need to provide the names and dates of the entries required and they can print copies and post them. The fees are 50p per A4 page plus 28 pounds per hour research fee. The research fee is not a minimum charge so they will charge you for the actual time taken.
If you require digital copies on a cd they can do this for a cost of 10 pounds for the first image and 4 pounds for each subsequent image, plus the research fee. They can provide you with a copy of the microfilm of the entire register but that would be quite expensive and you would need to arrange some method of being able to view them.
You can email the Archives Assistant direct -or visit the online catalogue
