Our main purpose is to preserve Cornwall's archives for the future and make them available for members of the public to access. Our records relate to the people, places and organisations of Cornwall.

Please note: Cornwall Record Office is now permanently closed while staff move to Kresen Kernow, which is due to open for public research visits on 11 September 2019. Visit our Kresen Kernow project web page or contact us for more information.
