Orcheston’s Baptism Roll, 1941-1957

The joint Orcheston Baptism Roll of the two village churches, St Mary’s and St George’s, from 1941 to 1957, is kept in St Mary’s Church. It records 62 names of babies baptised during that time, most of them in our two churches but also 23 who came from the village but were baptised in churches outside the village, some in nearby churches in Wiltshire but  a number from as far away as Cheshire, Birmingham and Sussex.

If you read it carefully you may spot one or two names you know…
