Online catalogues

Please note: Cornwall Record Office and the Cornish Studies Library are now permanently closed while staff move to Kresen Kernow. Kresen Kernow is due to open for research visits on 11 September 2019. Further information and booking will be available closer to the time. For more information on Cornwall's new archive centre, please visit the Kresen Kernow project page

To help you locate the records and books that are of interest to you, catalogues containing descriptions of the items that we hold are available to search for free online.

If you have not used our archive catalogues before, please use the help pages to get you started or the Online Catalogues Guide. There are currently no images of the documents available, but the individual catalogue entries contain detailed descriptions of most of the items in our collections and some even include a transcription of the document. Our Enquiries and Copies service is currently suspended while we move.
