Warwickshire County Record Office
Warwickshire County Record Office is involved in safeguarding, managing and developing Warwickshire’s archives so that they can be accessed, interpreted and enjoyed by all those with an interest in Warwickshire’s past and its people.
The office collects, preserves and makes available the historic records of Warwickshire and its people. We have records dating from the 12th century onwards and our collections cover a wide variety of historical documents, from old title deeds to recent baptism registers. Records are deposited with us on a regular basis, and we keep all records in a secure and safe environment so that they will be preserved for future generations.
The records can be accessed through our public search room, where you can request and view items from our collections. You can also access some of our resources from home, and we can deal with certain types of enquiry by post or email.
Who we are
There are six archivists and a conservator, as well as a number of archive assistants, conservation assistant and administrative staff. The archivists and archive assistants staff the public search room and provide advice to visitors on their research. We also have a conservation unit, which is responsible for the physical preservation of the records. Their duties involve repairing documents, ensuring that the strongrooms meet the optimum environmental conditions and producing surrogate copies such as microfilms and digital images.
