Pembrokeshire Record Office Move

From the Federation of Family History Societies (

Pembrokeshire Record Office Move

The public search room is no longer available to visitors.

The Pembrokeshire Record Office is on track to move in to its new home on the former site of Prendergast Junior School in Haverfordwest at the end of this year.

Work preparing for the move has been going on for several months in the background at the Record Office - based in Haverfordwest Castle - while maintaining a public service for historical research.

The relocation itself is a major project and includes the transfer of the County Archive which fills over two and a half kilometres of shelves in the repository of the current building.

To facilitate the move it will be necessary to close the public search room to visitors temporarily from the early autumn.

It will be ready to open again to the public at the new site early in 2013.
The new building - which reflects significant investment by Pembrokeshire County Council - will offer an increased level of service.

Significantly improved facilities including a larger, better equipped visitor space, rest area, better reprography facilities, archive conservation studio and meeting/education room.

During closure the office will respond to written and telephone enquiries in line with the County Council's policy on dealing with external communications.

Any questions concerning the service and, in particular, the temporary closure of the public search room may be directed to:

The Pembrokeshire Record Office,
The Castle,
SA61 2EF.
