Doing some detective work on your behalf
You are welcome to visit the Berkshire Record Office (BRO) and to use the documents, catalogues and indexes free of charge.
However, you may wish to make preliminary enquiries in advance to find out whether a personal visit is worthwhile; or you may not be able to come to the BRO to look at the records yourself.
In both cases, our research services can help you. Click on the links below to find out more.
Please note that we aim to respond to enquiries within 5 working days of receiving them.
