However, we value our clients and our Enquiry Team will continue to answer enquiries sent to them by email and telephone to the best of their ability, using the digital resources available to us.
Though we have been unable to answer the enquiries that involve access to the physical archives over the last months, we are hoping to be able to do so again in the near future. In the meantime, we will do everything possible to assist you with your research.
