The Registry of the Diocese of Sydney is part of the Archbishop’s Office. The Registry collects various records for the Anglican Diocese of Sydney, as required under various administrative ordinances of the Diocese. Records which are no longer current are accessed from the Sydney Diocesan Archives.
Some of the work of the Registry includes:
