Hammersmith & Fulham Archives and Local History Centre
We hold the archives and local history collections for Hammersmith & Fulham, including documents, books, maps, photographs and paintings, old newspapers and other sources for family and house history. These records come from the council and its predecessor bodies, local institutions such as hospitals, churches and schools, and from members of the local community.
