Email: archives@rcdmidd.org.uk

Middlesbrough Diocesan Archive is the main central repository for historical records relating to the Diocese and the churches within its present boundaries. As well as primary source documents the Archive contains an extensive library of books on Catholic Church history. Whilst this is a private collection, not open to the public on a regular basis, visitors are welcome by prior appointment. Contact may be established in the first instance by writing to the archivist at the above address, or by email or by leaving a telephone message.
Enquiries are welcome and the archivist will do his best to answer these either by letter or by arranging for enquirers to visit the archives and view records for themselves. For those researching family history it should be pointed out that, although many older sacramental registers are held there, others remain in parishes.  Please note also that a fee will be charged for searches carried out by the archivist on behalf of family historians at a rate of £19 for each hour or part thereof. There is no charge for visitors to the archives who carry out their own searches or for Baptismal Certificates needed for the purpose of marriage.
