Co-operative Archive Visit the archive Using our archive services - Updated for January 2021: Due to national lockdown in England; our Archivist is working very reduced hours at present and access to stored materials in our central Manchester premises is not possible. As a result of these restrictions online requests may take longer than usual to fulfil. Bookable services Initial enquiries are free but if you need us to do research for you or answer a more in-depth research enquiry the following charges may apply. *Please consider that this may be cheaper than the cost of travelling to Manchester for a visit in person once restrictions have been lifted. £15 for 30 minutes of research. If further research is required this would be charged at £30 per hour with a minimum of 1 hour, maximum 3 hours Includes: A research report summary document, 4 high quality A4 / 2 A3 copies and postage or digital files (non-commercial use), up to 10 additional copies or digital files (JPG/PDF or MP4).
