What we do
Our friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable staff provide access to archive services and resources to thousands of people each year. We make available the records of the county’s history, connecting you with the stories of Worcestershire people and places through historical maps, parish registers, wills, photographs and much more.
For those unable to make the journey to Worcester, there are various ways for you to get access to archives you need. We’re happy to advise you free of charge on our service and the collections we hold, and we offer a paid research service undertaken by our expert staff. In addition, we can provide copies of commonly used resources such as wills, parish registers, and electoral registers.
