These non-public archives relate strictly to the official interaction and activity of the successive Bishops of Lancaster and are in the care of the Bishop’s Archivist.
N.B. Baptismal and other sacramental archives are not kept centrally or in these archives. Enquiries for such records should be made at the parish where the sacraments were actually received. Archival material for specific diocesan departments is kept with the competent department concerned.
Enquiries relating to the Bishop’s Archives i.e. parish history enquiries, etc must be made in writing to the Bishop’s Archivist.
