The local and family history centre exists to encourage interest in local and family history in Epsom, Ewell, Langley Vale, Stamford Green, Stoneleigh, and Woodcote.

We offer an extensive range of resources including census records, parish registers, large scale maps, directories, electoral registers and photos. Plus, 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.

Epsom and Ewell Local and Family History Centre is a partnership between Surrey Libraries, Surrey History Centre, Bourne Hall Museum and Epsom and Ewell History and Archaeology Society, and is staffed by volunteers.

Volunteers are needed to help with sorting and cataloguing documents, scanning photographs, researching and preparing displays and transferring Victorian census details to a computerised database.
