Catalogues, Enquiries, Access and Donations

 
Online catalogues for the HAC Archives 
 
Catalogue descriptions of the Company’s archives can be researched online via the National Archives Discovery catalogue and AIM25 (for archives in London and the M25 area). 
 
A collection of early printed books and pamphlets on military subjects cover the period 1616-1800 are also held by the HAC Archives. Most of this early printed material in the HAC Archives is included in the British Library’s English Short Title Catalogue (ESTC) .
 
Enquiries and Access 
 
If you are researching a member of the HAC, please note that various membership and regimental service records for the period 1848-1922, including the First World War period, are now available for searching via the ‘Honourable Artillery Company’ record set on the commercial family history website, findmypast. 

The Cardew-Rendle Roll has also recently been published by the HAC in two volumes and contains biographies of around 17,000 members admitted up to 31 March 1908. 

See Researching Members of the Company for more information on these new resources.

Members of the Company are welcome to consult the Archives by appointment with the Archivist during working hours (usually a Tuesday and Wednesday). 
 
Enquiries from academic and other bona fide researchers should be made in writing to the Archivist via the Contact Form or by post.  A donation to the Archives Fund is appreciated for answering a complex or lengthy enquiry.  
 
Some records, such as those for the Company’s Benevolent Fund, are subject to lengthy closure rules.
