Boundary Commission

Birmingham Archdiocese is made up of around 270 parishes, with the West Midlands cities in the middle and stretching from Stoke-on-Trent in the north down to Reading in the south. The Boundary Commission advises the Archbishop about the boundaries to each parish and gives out general information on them. Parish boundaries are important because they decide who you need to contact when arranging the sacraments such as a baptism or a wedding and, in some cases, living inside them can be an entrance criteria for Catholic schools.

The Commission holds definitive written descriptions of the boundaries of each parish, such as which side of a road belongs to a particular parish. We have done our best to plot these as an overlay to Google Maps on the internet and this will be available again soon on this website.
