County Listings

Our library holdings for each county are now available to view by clicking on the relevant county link below. Each link will take you to a list of which records we currently hold for each county.

Each county catalogue is divided into sections for parish registers, trade directories and then any other documents that we hold. We believe the information is up to date and accurate, but it is always advisable to double check with the librarian that a book is still available before visiting to view it. Remember to also check our latest acquisitions.

The listings only represent sources for a specific county and are only a small part of our collection. A full catalogue of all the library holdings can be viewed in the library.

Visitors to the library can request to view any of the documents. The documents can also be searched on behalf of an individual for the library search fee of £20.00 for half an hour. Where appropriate a scanned image of the document would be provided or a transcript or abstract made.

If you find a record that is of interest to you and you wish to visit the library, our library opening hours are Monday – Thursday 10am-4.00pm. You will need to telephone us to book a place in advance. Non-members pay a higher rate (full day £12.50: half day: £8.75).

If you wish to become a member of the IHGS the yearly rate is currently £22.50. (See the Membership page).

Alternatively if you are unable to visit in person we can carry out a search on your behalf. See our library search facilities.
