The London Record Society is a charity founded in 1964 to stimulate interest in archives relating to London. It holds an annual public lecture dealing with an aspect of London archives, hosts this website and publishes volumes of transcripts, translations, abstracts and lists of primary sources relating to the history of London. These volumes appear in hard covers and are carefully prepared by specialists in their subject. Many of the forty-five or so volumes published by the Society are now available online via British History Online. Suggestions about the work of the Society and about possible future volumes are always most welcome, for more details see the Publications Proposal section under About Us.

The Society’s Annual General Meeting is normally held in October, followed by a lecture on the subject of the society’s recent publications. New members, whether individual or institutional, are most welcome. Members are entitled to a complimentary copy of the Society’s annual publication. The Society’s publications are available to non-members; information is available on the publications page.
