Caister-on-Sea was created in 1935 out of the two parishes of East Caister and West Caister which both had only been formed in 1926 from the original parish of Caister next Yarmouth.

Research Tips

Because Caister-on-Sea and its immediate forerunners were not formed until the 20th century, most genealogical references for the parish area will be found under the former municipality of Caister next Yarmouth.
