Lambeth Archives

Lambeth Archives

Lambeth Archives collects, makes available and preserves archives and published material relating to Lambeth and its people, past and present. These collections chart the growth and diverse histories of Lambeth over the centuries.

The archives reading room is open to the public free of charge, without appointment and you do not need to be a member of Lambeth Libraries to use the service.

Whether you want to trace your family history, house history, discover the origins of your neighbourhood or look at how the area is governed, staff will be there to assist you.

Lambeth Archives shares its building with the Minet Library, which was founded by William Minet in 1890 and whose collections of books, rare prints and manuscripts relating to the history of Lambeth and surrounding parishes are a core part of the archive collections.
