Copy Service

If you are unable to visit the Record Office, we may be able to supply you with photocopies or electronic copies of documents.

If you have found a document listed on our online catalogue which you think is relevant to your research, take a note of its reference, contact us with your request, and we will let you know if it is possible to make copies, and confirm what the cost will be.

Entries listed on the Bath Ancestors database can be ordered directly from the database. The charges for copies are the same as our standard copying fees. We will confirm the total cost before finalising the request and providing details of how to make a payment.
