We are pleased to answer routine enquiries and aim to send a response within 10 working days. In order to enable us to deal with your enquiry more efficiently please use one of the options below or to the left.

If your enquiry requires detailed research, we may advise you to visit the Library, or suggest that you employ a researcher. The Association of Genealogists and Researchers in Archives, the Federation of Family History Societies, or the National Archives may be able to assist in providing contact details for record agents and other freelance researchers. The Library is unable to recommend individuals.


Following the recent government guidance regarding the outbreak of coronavirus the National Church Institutions have closed both Lambeth Palace Library and the Church of England Record Centre.

All staff are currently working from home.  

At the moment the only images we are able to provide are the existing ones, therefore we are unable to accept orders for new photography. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you.
