The Diocesan Archives consist of a substantial collection of papers, manuscripts, correspondance, books, registers, ledgers, photographs and items of interest. The Archives do not extend far back beyond the erection of the Archdiocese in 1916, however a few items do pre-date this period. The archive contains the Acta (working documents) of the Archbishops, private papers are very few.
Anyone with an interest in the history of the Archdiocese or the life of the Catholic Church within Wales may find the contents of the archives of interest. Please note that over the years the catalogue system has not been maintained effectively and the archivists are currently recatalouging sections of the archives.
Please note the archives are not available for the general public to access, however the archivists will be happy to assist genuine research.
