A great many parish histories have been published, throwing further light on ministers and their social background.

Each volume of the Fasti includes a bibliography of published parish histories; some biographies and autobiographies of eminent churchmen have also been published.

Newspapers (some going back to the 18th century) usually note the death of a local minister and include an obituary - valuable in outlining his life and work.

Monumental inscriptions for many kirkyards are now published and a minister often had an impressive memorial.
