Search our catalogues
You can search over 82% of our catalogues online by clicking here
The site is presently experiencing some technical difficulties, for which we apologise.
Some search tips:-
If looking for a person, fill in the 'Name' box surname first e.g. Smith, John
The 'Place' search does not presently work - but you can use the freetext box to search for places instead. You can search by place name or street name.
For more results select 'item' from the 'Level' drop down box.
When the results are displayed they show the reference number of the document and the title. If you click on the title this will bring up (in most cases) a more detailed description of the contents of the document.
Copies of documents
We can provide copies of most of the documents listed on this database, either in photocopy form (minimum order charge of £6.20) or in digital form for £8.40 per image. Please contact us
for a quote. There are some documents where copying is not possible due to the size or fragility of the original. You can look at any of the documents free of charge in our public searchroom
, or one of our experienced team can transcribe or extract information from the document for you - a research fee
of £16 per 30 minutes applies.
We are continually adding our old hard copy catalogues and new accessions into our online database so please check reguarly to see new information. Eventually all our catalogues will be available online.
PLEASE REMEMBER that not all our catalogues are included yet. Around 18% of our catalogues are presently only available in hard copy form in our searchroom. To find information from these catalogues you will need to visit us
