Copying service

Please note...

Under some exceptional circumstances copying may be restricted for preservation, copyright or Data Protection reasons.

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

We aim to complete all copying orders within 30 working days of receipt of payment.

Help us deal with your order swiftly - contact us beforehand with the nature of your order and supply references if you have them.

We can't perform extensive research in order to locate a document in our care as part of our copying service, but we do offer a number of research services to assist with the discovery and interpretation of documents that we hold.

For copyright reasons, we can only supply copies for personal and private study use. For alternative usage, such as to publish images we have supplied, please contact us.
