Work will commence in June 2017 to reverse serious water penetration and weathering to the Chapter House. In preparation for this the Cathedral Library will be closed from Friday 31 March 2017 for all general enquiries and research visits. We anticipate that the Library will re-open towards the end of 2018.
Dean and Chapter records are currently on deposit at Lichfield Record Office. Enquiries about baptisms, marriage and deaths records, where they exist, are available there. The Record Office also holds details about property, litigation, Cathedral fabric, Chapter records (1384 – 1950) etc.
Requests for images can still be made during this time; please email Clare Townsend, Libraries’ Manager at: firstname.lastname@example.org
