Online catalogues

Catalogues to about half the records we hold are available online on two different websites.

South West Heritage Trust website

Catalogues to just under half our collections can be found in a joint catalogue which includes archives held in the Bath Record Office and in the Somerset Archives and Local Studies. To search these catalogues use this link to the South West Heritage Trust website.

'Access to Archives' website

A small number of catalogues are available on the National Archives' 'Discovery' website (which now incorporates the former Access to Archives (A2A) website). The website includes catalogues from a large number of record offices in England and Wales. To look only for archives held by the Bath Record Office, use the Advanced Search option, which will enable you to choose 'Bath Record Office' under 'Other Archives' in the 'Held By' section at the bottom of the form.

Local Studies Collection

The majority of the printed books and pamphlets in the Local Studies collection are listed on the Libraries West catalogue.

Catalogues not available online

About half of the archives we hold are not listed on either of these online catalogues. If you can't find what you are looking for online, do please contact us to see whether we hold records relevant to your research.

The records of Bath City Council/Bath & North East Somerset Council have been partially catalogued with the help of funding from the National Cataloguing Grants Programme for Archives.  You can see the catalogue here, as a PDF.
