(Featuring the Articles and Archive of Iain Wakeford)




I have tried to divide the archive into logical sections to make finding things easier, but this is not a comprehensive list of items in my archive, just an indication of some of the pre-2000 items I hold, so if you cannot find what you are looking for please ask.

Not everything has been scanned, but those that have are highlighted in blue on the list, so if you find something listed in white that you are interested in please let me know and I will try to get it up on this site as soon as possible.

Woking Urban District Council, Woking District Council and Woking Borough Council Minutes –

I have copies of Council Minutes from April 1931 to March 1998, but have so far only managed to scan and upload two months - 1938-39 - (Mar) 1939-40 - (Apr)  - whether I will ever get around to scanning all the rest will depend on demand, so if there is a specific date that you would like to see, please let me know. Otherwise they are all available to be viewed (during normal office hours) by appointment.

If anyone has copies of the council minutes pre April 1931 (or post March 1998), please let me know.

Also if anybody has copies of the minutes of any of the old Parish Councils, Highways Boards, Sanitary Boards, Local Boards, or  Chertsey Rural District Council prior to Pyrford and the Byfleets being transferred to Woking, please let me know.
