The National Archives are making digital records available on their website free of charge for as long as the Kew site is closed to visitors.
Registered users will be able to order and download up to ten items at a time, to a maximum of 50 items over 30 days. The limits are there to try and help manage the demand for content and ensure the availability of digital services for everyone.
To access the service and download for free, users will be required to:
- Register/sign in to their Discovery account before adding items to their basket (maximum ten items per basket)
- Abide by the terms of the fair use policy
- Complete the order process to receive a download link, which will remain active for 30 days. (The link will also be saved in ‘Your orders’ in your account for 30 days)
