Our Services

Following the Prime Minister's statement on 31st October regarding a national lockdown we will be closed to visitors from 5th November until 2nd December 2020 inclusive.

We will continue to offer remote services, but please do bear with us as we will have fewer staff onsite to process requests so things are likely to take a bit longer.

We hope to reopen on 3rd December 2020.

Would you like to discover more about your ancestors or explore the past? We can help you.

We can:

  • Provide details about our records and other sources held at the BRO and elsewhere, and how they can be used for research, free of charge
  • Undertake searches of the records themselves, for a fee
  • Provide copies of many of the records we hold.

Perhaps you would like us to restore an old photograph of your own, provide a talk to your local society or to even give us your records. Whatever your query, we offer many services to assist you. Please click on the links to find out more.
