The National Archives Document Ordering

The Society has been advised of the following changes to document ordering at The National Archives:-

From Tuesday 31 March 2020, as part of a six-month trial, readers will be able to order a maximum of 12 documents for the same day, plus up to 12 documents ordered in advance (a maximum of 24 documents per reader per day).

There will be five document ordering slots available each day and you can order as many of your 12 same-day documents as you require in any of the slots. This means that if you have prepared your references you will be able to order 12 documents at the same time. Documents will be delivered at set times each day.

Full details may be found here: https://nationalarchives.gov.uk/about/news/changes-to-document-ordering/
