Until 1840 Tansley was part of Crich Parish until the hamlet petitioned for a church of their own.
“the hamlet of Tansley contains a population of upwards of 500 souls and is distant from the Parish Church (of Crich) of four miles and that it is extremely inconvenient for the inhabitants of the said hamlet to attend divine service in the said parish of Crich, and in order to provide some church accommodation and aid for spiritual wants of the people residing therein considerable funds have been raised by voluntary contributions together with other grants to build a chapel”
Holy Trinity Church was started in 1839.
After 1840 Births, Marriages and Death records for the Tansley area would most likely have moved from Crich to Tansley.Go to Tansley Records
