Accessing archives

To access archives you need to be a member of Bexley Libraries. Anyone can join, you don’t have to live in Bexley and it is free. Some of our records are stored off-site, so we recommend you contact us in advance to ensure that we have the archives ready for you.

Research services

Our basic enquiry service is free for information and simple research enquiries taking no longer than 20 minutes.

For detailed research requests concerning either family or local history we charge £30 per hour, with a maximum of two hours' research. There is no guarantee of any results but if that is the case we will try to advise you of other possible avenues to pursue.

If you wish to request a research service please complete the research request form (Word, 30KB).
