First published in 1984, The Phillimore Atlas and Index of Parish Registers includes parish boundary maps, with a summary of locations and indexes for England, Scotland and Wales.

The atlas includes county parish maps which show pre-1882 parochial boundaries, color-coded probate jurisdictions, starting dates of surviving registers, as well as churches and chapels.

Topographical maps face each parish map and show the contemporary road system and other local features. An index lists all parishes with grid references to the county maps, and provides registration districts and census information. It also indicates the present whereabouts of original registers and copies, and whether a parish is included in other indexes.
