Find the Records

Cumberland has four record offices: Barrow, Kendall, Carlisle, and Whitehaven. Links to the offices are found on the Cumbria Archive Service site.

Probate records and indexes on microfilm, microfiche and in print are also available at some societies and libraries, including through the Family History Library. References to a list of the ones in the library's collection can be found by clicking here

Search Indexes First

Indexes will help you easily find the probate record. An index could be a strict alphabetical list, a list of all last names starting with a letter of the alphabet, a group of names for a specific number of years. References to the probate indexes in the Family History Library collection can be found by clicking here.
