Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire Archives both close temporarily
The archive services of Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire both closed on 3 December 2018.
The two services operate jointly, and staff are now working on cleaning and packaging Cambridgeshire Archives documents before a move to a new facility in Ely, which is due to open in autumn 2019.
Huntingdonshire Archives will remain in its current location at Huntingdon Library, and reopen on 3 June 2019.
During the closure period, both archives will open one day a month by appointment only. Only records listed under the Public Records Acts are available at Cambridgeshire. However, all of Huntingdonshire Archives’ records are available thanks to funding from Huntingdonshire Local History Society. For a full list of opening dates, visit bit.ly/opening-dates.
In addition, transcripts of Huntingdonshire’s parish registers are available by appointment only at the Norris Museum in St Ives, while the Cambridgeshire parish register transcripts and microfilms of probate records are available at Cambridge Central Library.
