We offer an extensive range of resources including census records, parish registers, large scale maps, directories, illustrations and photographs.

We provide a microfilm and microfiche reader-printer and there is access to the internet on the library computer terminals.

If we can't answer your question, we can refer you to local experts or Surrey History Centre. When the centre is not staffed you can leave a written enquiry.

The centre is a partnership between Surrey Libraries, Surrey History Centre, Banstead History Research Group and other local community and history organisations.
