Exciting news for Staffordshire Record Office

Congratulations to our colleagues over the border in Staffordshire, who have just announced their success in gaining a substantial HLF grant to help them develop the Record Office and William Salt Library in Stafford into a new, modern Staffordshire History Centre.  Take a look at the vision for archives and heritage to find out more about their exciting plans.

Many Derbyshire researchers will be familiar with Staffordshire Archives Service – before the Diocese of Derby was created in the 1920s, Derbyshire was in the Diocese of Lichfield, for instance, so Derbyshire’s early wills and bishops transcripts are all held in Staffordshire.

If you use the archives service in Staffordshire there will be plenty of opportunities to be involved in how the new History Centre develops, so do follow the link above to  find out more and sign up for updates.  We look forward to seeing the new History Centre come to fruition!
