About us

At the Record Office we collect, preserve and provide access to the documentary and recorded heritage of the county of West Sussex.

Outreach and events

The Record Office engages in a wide range of 'outreach' activities, from coffee time workshops for new family historians to the publication of books, pamphlets and DVDs. We are also keen to recruit volunteers to help in the archives.

Leaflets, forms and other documents

We have produced a number of leaflets and request forms to help you with research. You can also find our policies and other supporting documents here.
