Shropshire Archives is open in a phased way from 21 April 2021.


Volunteers play a vital role in adding value to our existing services, and we enjoy offering opportunities for volunteers to participate in.

Traditionally volunteers have worked on site, but at this time onsite volunteering opportunities are suspended due to coronavirus restrictions.  We hope to welcome volunteers back onsite when restrictions are lifted but this will be in a limited way to keep everyone safe. 

In the meantime, there are opportunities for you to get involved with remote volunteering.  Some volunteers have recently indexed pre 1841 census returns and are beginning work on fire insurance records.  Others have helped geo-reference the amazing photograph collection and also contributed to our blog posts.  This is helping make our resources more accessible and we’d like to thank everyone who has got involved.

If you’d like to volunteer from home, please email [email protected] to find out more.
