I am looking for a way to plot data relating to the number of people in a given location - the location being an ecclesiastical parish. So I need software that will allow me to import a map of parishes in a diocese. As an ancient Geography graduate (1961 degree) I have no experience of digital mapping.

Do I need to research a grid reference for each parish to add to the people data I already have?


The Vision of Britain has Ecclesiastical Parish boundaries but I can't see them listed on the data download page. It may be worth contacting the project to see if they can supply them. Or you could consider using Civil Parishes as @Mapperz suggests.

In both cases I think the issue will be that Britain is not completely covered in parishes.
