We may have to consult with the depositors of the items, in which case it may be up to 28 days before we can respond to you.

Once we have made a decision, you will be contacted by a representative from Warwickshire County Council to inform you of the outcome of your application. The County Record Office reserves the right to charge for the publication of items that it holds in its collections. Charges are levied at the discretion of the County Record Office.
