West Yorkshire Archive Service premises to relocate

Thanks to Beryl Evans of the Federation of Family History Societies ( and Terry Berry, Public Services and Access Manager of West Yorkshire Archive Service:

West Yorkshire Archive Service will close its Sheepscar premises on Thursday 30th August 2012. These premises have proved inadequate for a modern archive service in terms of both public access and modern standards for archive storage.

In order to ensure that it does not lose its ‘place of deposit’ status currently under review by The National Archives, the service is relocating to West Yorkshire Joint Services HQ at Morley, Leeds.

It is planned that the new improved services will open in November 2012. Keep up to date by checking our website at
