The Family History Library has microfilms of the original parish registers for Glemsford. The registers begin in 1550 and continue up to 1934. The registers contain christenings, burials, and marriages. There are gaps in years of the registers and these gaps are specified in the Family History Catalog. Since Latin was the script of the Church of England for sometime, part of the registers are in Latin. There is a transcription of the registers also microfilmed but does not cover the same span of years as the original records.

The Bishop's Transcripts or BT's begin in 1698 and then end in 1870. However the years of documenation are not continuous, there are gaps. The available years for Glemsford are; 1698, 1705, 1708,1715,1722, 1724, 1728, 1734, 1739, 1746, 1752,1759,1762,1769,1776, 1783,1790,1793,1800,1805,1812-70.
