The West Yorkshire Archive Service collects and looks after the unique documentary heritage of the region and helps members of the public use and enjoy these records.

The service had offices in Wakefield, Bradford, Calderdale (Halifax), Kirklees (Huddersfield) and Leeds and offers a free public service to visitors who want to explore the documents in our collections. 

We collect and preserve millions of records of all kinds, dating from the twelfth century up to the present day over 800 years of history!
You can learn more about our collections, services and events by exploring our website.
