Pre-order documents for a visit

With regret we have decided to temporarily close Kresen Kernow, so we are not taking pre-orders at the moment. The health of our visitors, volunteers and staff is very important to us so, in line with current advice, we will be closed from Friday 20 March until further notice.

If you have pre-ordered documents for a research visit we will be in touch. Thank you for your patience and understanding, please keep an eye on our website and social media for updates and information.

Usually, you can easily pre-order items by searching the catalogue and adding items to ‘My collection’. You can then select ‘My collection’ at any time using the button at the top of the screen, and email, print, save or pre-order the items.

Please note, you can pre-order up to 12 items from our collections, any time up to 11am on the day before your visit. We cannot process pre-orders after 11am. References that are listed as Collections, Series or restricted records can not be pre-ordered.

When you are at Kresen Kernow you can order  items using the document request slips in the Archive.

Pre-order documents for a visit

    Please note, only the first 12 documents on your list will be pre-ordered. Pre-orders can only be processed if we receive them by 11am on the day before your visit. Items that are Collections, Series or restricted records can not be pre-ordered.
