This section of the website offers finding aids for those undertaking historical research on Saffron Walden. The Resources consist of a number of listings, catalogues and databases relating to various sources on information held in the Gibson Library, Museum, Essex Record Office or other repository. If using these references for publication, please acknowledge the source as this website. We thank the volunteers who have spent many hundreds of hours transcribing and typing these lists for the use of others. Further listings will be added as time goes on. The link to the section can be found under Resources in the menu bar above. For enquiries about the lists prepared by the Essex Society for Family History (NW Essex Branch), please contact their chairman, Janice Sharpe at
