Our services


Before you make an enquiry you may like to check our online catalogue.

Our free enquiry service offers advice about your research question and the availability and use of our records. We will check easily accessible indexes as part of our free enquiry service, but please note that we make a charge for looking up information in our records and will refer such requests to our research service.


Requests for research should be submitted on a Research application form  Download Adobe Reader to view this PDF 52kB.

We may not accept an application if instructions are unclear or unachievable.

Further details, including charges, are available on the form. Charges are for time spent, not results. For guidance, half an hour’s research would allow a search for a baptism in a rural parish over 5-10 years, or for one address in up to four electoral registers.
