Focusing on the health and wellbeing of our staff and customers is our top priority. In line with national guidance and government recommendations we have taken the decision to close the record office until further notice. We will not be able to undertake research or give collections advice at this time, but will endeavour to respond to any enquiries, if possible, but this service is dependent upon staff availability. We will put any further updates about the service on our website. We’re encouraging all our customers to stay safe in these unprecedented times by keeping up to date with the latest government guidance at www.gov.uk/coronavirus
