The Birmingham Archdiocesan Archives contains the historical documents of the Midland District (1688-1840), Central District (1840-1850), Diocese of Birmingham (1850-1911), Archdiocese of Birmingham (1911-).  It is also the repository of the parishes of the archdiocese and contains many parish registers. These can be searched on our own website which can be found at www.birminghamarchdiocesanarchives.org.uk.

The archives are normally open to members of the public on three days of the week (Wednesday-Friday) from 11 am until 6 pm.  No charge is made.  It is necessary to make an appointment by letter, telephone or e-mail before visiting; casual visitors are not admitted.  ID (including address) must be produced on your first visit.
