If coming to visit from a distance please call us to see if we have the data you need or to book a computer or fiche reader.

The Centre has Disabled Access. If you have any concerns about visiting, then please phone us. Our Volunteers will be pleased to help and, if required, we can arrange for a dedicated helper, or for searches of our resources to be done on your behalf.

We hope you enjoy your research with us … feel free to leave us comments on how we can continue to improve the Centre and the services it provides.
