Please note that, due to the ongoing effects of the pandemic on staffing, we are currently only able to offer microfilmed copies of probate records. Searching services are now available. We may also be able to provide assistance with translation or transcription requests as part of our searching services.

We offer a number of services to help you with your research.

Research service

Our research service is designed for people who can't visit, but who have questions they would like answering using our archive material, or for people who have visited but didn't have time to complete their research.

Services include searching, and document transcription and translation.

Research Guides

Information on using our holdings to research particular topics or themes.

These guides help provide an introduction to the types of material that we hold in these areas and describe how they can be used.

Copying service

We offer a remote copying service to supply copies of original or microfilmed documents we hold.

We can send them to you electronically or in the post.
