CASCAT: Cumbria Archive Service Catalogue


Our online catalogue provides details of many of our holdings at our four Archive Centres in Barrow, Carlisle, Kendal and Whitehaven, and it can be searched in a number of ways.

Enter your search term(s) directly into CASCAT, our online catalogue. Alternatively you can use our Guide to browse our holdings, with links (organised under Official Records, Public Records, Church Records and Non-Official Records) to take you to the right part of our catalogue.


Further guidance for family historians can be found in our publication 'Cumbrian Ancestors' available from our online shop.
