Lancashire Record Office holds millions of archives, filling over eight miles of shelving. It is very difficult to do justice to the size and diversity of our collections but some of the main categories are given here:

Records of local government: including Lancashire County Council and district and parish councils, and their predecessors, including Quarter Sessions, Poor Law unions and turnpike trusts.

Probate records of the Archdeaconries of Chester and Richmond.

Records of Anglican, Roman Catholic and nonconformist churches, including registers of baptisms, marriages and burials.

School records, including log books and admissions registers.

Private records, including manorial and estate records, family papers, and the records of businesses and societies.

Maps and plans, including tithe, enclosure and estate plans
