Research Service: ordering copies of documents

If you have identified a document you are interested in viewing but you are unable to visit in person we may be able to provide a photocopy / watermarked scan of a document up to A3 size. Not all documents are suitable to be copied or scanned so please send us an initial enquiry including the document reference and title (eg U/S/76 Lease for property in Stockton) to get confirmation before you pay. If you choose photocopies we can recommend whether black and white or colour copies would be suitable.

Please note this option does not include any staff research time.
