The Heritage Image Register is made up of Guest Images and scanned images deposited for safe keeping and controlled public and educational access.

The idea is to locate the whereabouts of 1000s of images held by individuals, private collections, attics, cupboards, boxes, albums etc., as well as by business, heritage groups & similar organisations. The images must have some heritage content to be considered for inclusion.

Preservation of the Original Photos.
Not sure what to do with your original photos? Clearing out the attic or the home of a loved one? Don't throw photos away we will find a home for them in a local archive, museum or library where they will be kept in secure conditions.
