What is not present in the database?

The largest set of records you will not find listed here are the parts of the collections which are currently uncatalogued. There are also some catalogued collections for which we don’t yet have an electronic version of the catalogue (e.g. the papers of the Aubrey-Fletcher family). If you don’t find what you want, please email us on and we can check the lists of uncatalogued material for you.
