Staffordshire will move to very high COVID alert level on 2 December

Coronavirus update

Temporary closure of on-site services

All of our service points are currently closed to the public, following government guidance. Please sign up for our e-newsletter to get timely updates on changes to our services.

If you are thinking of visiting us, please see our Planning a Visit and Social Distancing pages for further vital information.

Staffordshire Record Office, the William Salt Library, Stoke on Trent City Archives and the Lichfield History Access Point will remain closed to the public until further notice.

Planned events, exhibitions and on-site volunteering also remain suspended.

This web page will be updated to reflect any service changes.

Staffing

On-site staffing is being kept to a minimum, which may at times lead to a delay in the fulfilment of requests for information, research and the digitisation of documents.

Enquiries

In addition to answering written enquiries (by email or letter), we are responding positively to requests for research and scanning and photography orders.

Enquiries for the William Salt Library and the County Museum should be sent to Staffordshire Record Office. We are also able to fulfil some customer orders for images.
