Notes: Following the reorganisation of Guildhall Library, most of the archive and manuscript collections and archive services for the City of London are now concentrated at London Metropolitan Archives (LMA) in Clerkenwell, a mile north east of Guildhall Library. At LMA there is the full range of consultation facilities, conservation support, reprographics services and spacious areas for research and study. We anticipate that the vast majority of archives will now be consulted at LMA. A few important archives will continue to be housed and consulted at Guildhall Library. The key collections are:

  • The Stock Exchange archives and printed collections
  • Lloydís of London archives and printed collections (except the Lloyd's Captains' Registers, which remain at LMA)
  • St Paulís Cathedral archives (except microfilmed parish and probate records, and marriage licences, which remain at LMA)
  • Christís Hospital archives
  • The City of London Livery Company archives
