Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of the Catholic Record Society (CRS).

Why join the CRS?   Our members play a crucial part in the work of the Society to promote research and general interest in Catholic history in the island of Britain, its close connection with Ireland and its many links and connections in other parts of the world. 

Members also support and encourage one another’s work whether that be in local history, university research or personal research.  We do this in several ways: through newsletters to members; through an annual conference and various day conferences; via our closed Facebook group and through networking via this website.  We intend to develop the website  to allow members to provide information about work in progress. Between us we have a wealth of knowledge about Catholic history and connections into archives, the academy, local studies and global networks.

Members receive two issues of British Catholic History a year (May and October). Published by Cambridge University Press BCH is a well-established forum for vibrant scholarship on the history of British and Irish Catholicism at home and throughout the world from the 15th century to the present day.  Anyone who joins during the year will receive both issues for that year. Members with email addresses are given a code to access back issues of BCH via Cambridge University Press.

Additionally members receive any Record Series volumes published by the Society (with Boydell and Brewer).  Generally speaking the Society publishes one volume each year.
