Diocesan Archives
The Archives Department c/o Bishop's House, Marriott Street, Northampton NN2 6AW.
Please contact Bishop's House by letter (not e-mail or phone), giving as much information as possible about the nature of the enquiry. If from the UK, please include a stamped self addressed envelope. Address your enquiry to the 'Archives Department'. The enquiry will be dealt with as soon as possible, although we have to ask for your patience in view of limited staff resources. The long-term project to computerise the Archives index is substantially completed ; we hope to be able to offer a prompt service in the future.
