The Family History Library has microfilmed the parish registers, parish chest records, and some transcripts have been microfilmed. See FamilySearch Catalog for film numbers.

The Bishop's Transcripts for Worcester were filmed twice. The second filming is not complete, but contains the following:

Hallow Bishop Transcripts, 2nd filming
Notes Dates Film
Baptisms, marriages and burials (most pages are out of order and many are missing) 1609-1640, 1660-1700 FHL Film 246658 Item 2
baptisms, marriages and burials 1820-1832 FHL Film 350575 Item 6
baptisms and burials 1833-1838 FHL Film 350589 Item 1
marriages 1833-1837 FHL Film 350589 Item 1
Baptisms and burials 1838-1875 FHL Film 350639 Item 1

The first filming was not arranged by parish, but by year for the whole county. Thus, each year's transcripts are on a different microfilm. An FHL finding aid giving FHL film numbers by parish is available as FHL book 942.4 K29bt, also available on microfiche at Family History Centers, fiche 6035756 (2 fiches).
