Today we are launching our new Kilwinning Burgh catalogue! This will enable researchers to browse this catalogue online for the first time and is the fourth North Ayrshire burgh catalogue to be added to our website. The collection dates from 1889-1975 and contains a wide variety of records from town council minute books, abstract of accounts, assessment rolls, housing ledgers and records of the associated bodies including cemetery records.

Burgh records provide researchers with insights into the decisions made by the Town Council many years ago and for the first time researchers are able to view records which have never before been in the public domain. These records are available to view at our Ayrshire Archives Headquarters, Auchincruive by an appointment basis on a Tuesday. To arrange a viewing please phone 01292521819 or email
