We set up our digitisation programme in 2017 and since then we have digitised hundreds of thousands of records making them available in our online search tool Archway. Records available to view digitally rather than in person means the records are exposed to less wear and tear from transport and handling. This helps us to extend the life of the memory government for future generations. It also means they can be accessed online, from anywhere at any time making them a valuable resource for researchers worldwide.

We are open to suggestions on what series to digitise, If you'd like to make a suggestion send us a message .

The information below lists the series we have digitised by topic:
