Building works affecting Gloucestershire Archives

We currently have builders on site. Before your visit, please check the latest information about opening hours and parking. You will need to order your documents before you visit.

We will be closed from Monday 11th December 2017, reopening as Gloucestershire Archives at the Heritage Hub on Tuesday 2nd January 2018. During this time  we will be relocating to the remodelled public space. We hope to keep disruption to our customers at a minimum as this is our least busy time of the year. We look forward to welcoming you to the Heritage Hub in the New Year

Programme toolkits compiled by the Department for Communities and Local Government

These may also help you with your research

The Department for Communities and Local Government has published a First World War centenary programme 2014-2018 which serves as guidance to engage local communities in the commemoration of the First World War on 13th June 2014. 

The First World War centenary programme toolkit provides bite-sized facts and suggestions to help local communities get the most from the centenary programme. The guidance outlines a number of initiatives local communities can become involved with, including commemorative events, a national cultural programme, school battlefield visits, and the opportunity to become involved in social media. 

The guidance also features a useful list of national initiatives for individuals to become involved with at the local level, including the First World War Centenary Partnership, 14-18 NOW, and advice from the War Memorials Trust. You can read more about the First World War Centenary on www.1914.org.
