We created the Westminster Abbey record series in 1997 to publish items of historic importance and interest relating to the Abbey. It’s an occasional series of records, calendars, lists and indexes, intended to make the contents of the Abbey’s collections available to scholars and the wider public.
Items in the series include:
The Building Accounts of the Savoy Hospital London 1512-1520 ed. Charlotte Stanford, 2015.
Guide to the Muniments of Westminster Abbey, by Richard Mortimer, 2012.
Surveyors of the Fabric of Westminster Abbey 1827-1906 Reports and letters ed. Christine Reynolds, 2011.
A bibliography of Westminster Abbey...a guide to literature...published..1571-2000 by Tony Trowles, 2005.
The Obedientiaries of Westminster Abbey and their financial records c.1275-1540 by Barbara Harvey, 2002.
Acts of the Dean and Chapter of Westminster 1543-1609 and Acts..1609-1642 edited by C S Knighton, 3 vols, 1997 and 2006.
Volumes from the Westminster Abbey Record Series can be ordered from Boydell and Brewer.

The biggest challenge we face is actually time – getting all our work done alongside the daily routine of the Abbey as a working church, visitor attraction and home to 1,000 years of history.
