Detail

The inventory was created for the FCO by a specialist external company and its primary purpose was to capture information about the special collections. These are the records covered in the most detail, including in many cases a summary of the content of the record series.

The inventory is a continuously evolving document and can only provide a snapshot of holdings in the FCO’s working archive. We publish regular updates and endeavour to ensure it is as accurate as possible.

For further information, read the detailed guidance on the FCO’s Archive records.
