VII. WEBSITES (This centres on the census records from 1841 to 1911 (the most recent to have been released) and births, deaths and marriages registered since 1837, However, there are also numerous other records that, although primarily intended for family historians, provide a unique resource for wider research) (This website aims to cover all Anglo-Saxon (or Pre-Conquest) churches in England, including several major ones in Sussex. It is particularly strong in the photographs it contains.  It also contains entries on specific features of the period, such as quoins and windows which also rely largely on pictures and are therefore especially useful) (This provides the texts of English Heritage listings.  These vary greatly in the amount of detail, those for Brighton and Worthing being especially full, though no sources are given)
http// (This provides access to the Twentieth Century Society’s database of C20 churches, which gives basic details of a church, particularly its whereabouts, listing status and architect, though it is markedly less comprehensive for churches built after the 1960s)
http//  (This is the website of Lambeth Palace Library which among other things holds the records of the ICBS. The plans of individual churches that accompanied applications to the Society have been scanned and may be accessed.  In addition, there is basic information such as the names of architects, even of churches for which no plan survives.  However, the site does not include the accompanying correspondence etc found on the original files) (Lists of the Corpus of Romanesque Sculpture in Britain and Ireland.  The definition of ‘sculpture’ is wide, covering also architectural ornament and fittings such as fonts) (This is an actively developing website of images of churches throughout the country.  They are of very high quality and in the case of Sussex, all the churches so far included are in the East, but this will change over the next few years. At present, its particular strength is fittings and memorials, but increasingly general shots are also appearing) (This no longer exists as a separate website but the contents can be accessed through the University of Leicester website (Special Collections – Historical directories).  It contains a selection of Kelly’s and other directories, but there are many gaps that have to be found in a library) (As yet incomplete illustrated listings and assessments of mediaeval wall-paintings by Anne Marshall, covering such matters as dating and iconography, with a large selection of photographs) [NB. As of November 2018 this website could not be accessed] (This website is devoted to stained glass in Wales and though this sets obvious limits, the site has invaluable notes on makers of glass with photographs of their work) (Detailed listings of C19 and C20 glass in most of southern England, including Sussex, that can be assigned or attributed to a named artist.  It is compiled by Robert Eberhard)

There is also an increasing number of websites maintained by individual churches, artists, craftsmen and designers or mentioning them.  These vary enormously in their value to the researcher and it is impractical to list all of them.  However, it is always worth searching the net to see if there is anything.  Credits are given in the body of the text to most of the websites mentioned above and to any other more detailed ones that proved especially useful.
