While the Local Studies and Family History Centre is closed at the City Library, we can conduct limited, free research from the Local Collections, on your behalf.  

Please complete this form and indicate which of the limited research areas you require us to undertake. 

We’re unable to undertake in-depth research. 

  • We’re unable to undertake in-depth Family History Research, we can check for specific dates I.e., Death Notice in a Local Newspaper but an exact date or 2-week time frame must be given.  This applies to any of our resource's, dates must be provided. 

  • Dates must be provided for any check of our resources, I.e., Electoral Rolls, Newspapers, Parish Registers. 

  • We’re unable to check the GRO Indexes (Births, Marriages and Deaths), unless the life event is after 2005. Pre 2005 is available on Ancestry and Find My Past 

  • We’re unable to check the Census, this is available online. 

We will aim to reply within 5 working days, however at times of high demand this response time may vary.
