Suffolk Towns and Villages - Parish Locator

This page allows you to search for the location of places within Suffolk. It allows you to search for places by name, deanery, hundred or poor law union. The name field provides for searches within the place name, for example entering 'Little' in the parish name will find all the places which contain the word 'little'. You can use wildcards, '*', in your search. You are only allowed to select one of deanery, hundred or union. Once you have entered the fields you want, answer the security question and then click the search button. This will then display a list of places which match your search unless your search finds only one place in which case it displays it immediately. To look at the data for a particular place just click on the 'view' link to the right of the entry.

If you enter a hundred name without entering a place name it will list all the places in the hundred. This works similarly for deaneries and poor law unions. You can enter a place name with a hundred, deanery or union and restrict the place name search to that hundred or deanery.

If you are not sure of the spelling of a place you can use the 'soundex' option which uses a phonetic way of searching. Just click the option box under parish.

The data includes details of all parish churches past and present with photographs of all, where possible, kindly provided by member Adrian Pye. The details includes the OS grid references and latitude and longitude and mainly these refer to the church. Note there are a few place names within the county which are the same, e.g. Wangford.
