Research Room archive at Emsworth Museum

Some of the most used files in the Museum relate to Emsworth streets, Emsworth people and local trade directories. Use the search facility at the top to see if there are any documents about your family or your street. Simply enter the name and click the search icon.

Having found a possible file in the search, then you will be able to inspect these documents during a visit to the Museum. Volunteer stewards will help you find the file so that you can view it. These documents are not available for loan, unfortunately, but you can take your time in our Research Room to view them in depth.

Some abbreviations you will find:

  • BMD - Births, Marriages, and Deaths
  • OOS - Order of Service
  • PGW - PG Wodhouse
