Temporary closure of on-site services
Please sign up for our e-newsletter to get timely updates on changes to our services, as the course of the pandemic progresses.
Staffordshire Record Office closed to visitors at midnight on 30 December 2020, as Staffordshire is now in tier 4 (highest alert).
When we are able to reopen to visitors further information will be available on our Planning a Visit and Social Distancing.
The William Salt Library, Stoke on Trent City Archives and the Lichfield History Access Point will also 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.
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.
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.
