To search through the directory, use the filters at the top of the display. Alternatively, use the page numbers at the bottom to click through the directory one page at a time. When you have found the person you are looking for, click on their highlighted name to view their contact details.
Please be aware that at the moment the directory is not linked directly to the office databases. This means that changes are imported manually roughly once a week, so if you have notified a diocesan office of a change to your details, it will take that long to appear.
If you find any factually incorrect information in this directory, please send an email to the Leeds Office.

Filter by surname: You don't need to type in the full name, just the first few letters.
...by place name...: This filter conducts a search of the job title field. For most incumbents, this means that people can find them by the name of their parish.
...by role...: For diocesan officers and clergy with specific roles, such as area deans or bishops, this provides a quick way to filter names.
...by Episcopal Area: Almost all clergy are linked to a specific Episcopal Area. Remember, Archdeaconries are co-terminus with Episcopal Areas, i.e. they cover the same territroy. So if you want to find all the clergy in the Halifax Archdeaconry, simply select the Huddersfield Area. This filter will not display diocesan officers, who are there to support the whole diocese.
You can also combine filters. For example if you want to find all the area deans in one Episcopal Area, select both "Area Deans" and the name of the Area, and the directory will display the list of relevant names.
Notes on the directory's content
The directory primarily contains the contact details of people employed by the diocese, and is designed to be a tool mainly for church-goers and members of the general public to find their local Anglican vicar [incumbent] or a specific diocesan officer.
Job titles primarily reflect this criteria, as people are largely identified by the role in which they are employed by the diocese. This means, for example, that chaplains who are paid to exercise that specific ministry on either a full-time or part-time basis, like school and hospital chaplains, are identified as such. But those who have a relatively informal chaplaincy role that takes place as part of their parochial ministry, for example of their local primary school, are not.
