The National Probate Indexes are a tremendous aid in tracing the wills, not only locally but in any part of the country. Those for 1858 to 1943, inclusive, were housed at Colne library for several years. Unfortunately, as a result of the recent library renovations, the library no longer has room to keep this large collection of books. Consequently, it seemed that family historians were about to lose this excellent resource, until local businessmen, Henry Nelson and his son Jimmy, very generously offered space for the collection alongside their British in India Museum based in Nelson. The construction of a separate room and installation of very strong shelving has been financed entirely by the Nelsons and our very grateful thanks go to them for making it possible for this research facility to remain in our area. Normal Record Office rules apply to view the indexes. Researchers will be expected to sign a register. Pencils only to be used. No food or drink allowed in the room. There is no charge but any donations towards the maintenance and upkeep will be very much appreciated.

The address is:- The British in India Museum, Hendon Self Storage, Hendon Mill, Hallam Road, Nelson BB9 8AD. Telephone 01282 613129. The mill is a commercial building and there is no disabled access. Opening Times are Monday to Friday 10.00am to 4.00pm. Closed Bank Holidays.
