Message from Staffordshire County Council
 
Lichfield Record Office will close to the public on 1 January 2018. In January and February the archive collections will be prepared for transfer to Stafford, and the move will take place in March. Work will continue in Stafford in April to locate the collections and to update our online catalogue. Some collections will be held at the Service’s outstore in Stafford. Where this is the case the catalogue will show that 48 hours’ notice is required. This is also currently the case for some collections held by Staffordshire Record Office. Staff will also receive training about the collections, so that they can provide appropriate advice to enquirers. The collections will be fully available for consultation in May 2018.  For further detail contact: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
 
As a place of deposit for Public Records we have been working with the National Archives on regulatory issues concerning the closure.  We are working with the Library Service concerning the Archives and Heritage Service’s history access point in the new Lichfield Library, and concerning the future of the local studies collection at Lichfield Library.  We have also kept the Office’s depositors informed through depositor events.
 
Thank you
 
Joanna
