Free access to digital records at The National Archives 

An update from our Chief Executive and Keeper

As you MAY be aware, several weeks ago we closed our Kew site to visitors. Since then we have been working hard to ensure that you can continue to experience and research our collections and services from the safety of your home.

With that in mind, I'm very pleased to tell you that we are now providing free access to our digital records available on our website for as long as we remain closed to visitors. Registered users* can now order and download up to 10 items at a time, up to a maximum of 50 items over a rolling 30-day period. The limits are there to help ensure the availability of our digital services for everyone - you can read more about the service, including details of what's available to download, on our website.

I would very much like to thank you for your ongoing support and loyalty to The National Archives, as we maintain and preserve the public records for generations to come.

With very best wishes,

Jeff James
Chief Executive and Keeper, The National Archives
