Like many public services in the UK at the moment, the CRO is faced with changes to opening hours to save money. If you want to have your say, visit the CRO site www.cornwall.gov.uk/default.aspx?page=1729 and fill in the online survey
If you are planning to visit Cornwall Record Office in 2012 please check our pages and contact the office in advance as our opening hours will be changing from January 2012.
Following the public consultation regarding service reductions, the office will be closed the first full week of each month for a ‘collections week’, beginning January 2012. Our usual Tues-Fri, 9 am-4.30 pm, pattern will operate outside these hours with the addition of one Saturday opening, 10 am-1 pm, per month. Please check our opening times before visiting by following the links...

I read on the CRO website that they are in the process of locating their premises, therefore access and copying facilities are currently suspended. Is anybody able to advise when they will be able to start processing orders? I have some info I would like to query on some older posts (the surname Angwin of St Just in Penwith mainly), but thinking better to try and line a few ducks up first!!
Looking forward to visiting St. Ives and nearby communities. My grandpa was born in St Ives in 1890, traveled to NY on the Majestic in 1913.
Don't forget to visit the St Ives Archive, in Carbis Bay. They have a large number of family records. Opening hours are by appointment at the moment so you will need to book in advance. Details on their website and Facebook page.
