Today we are launching our new Darvel Burgh catalogue! The records within this collection date from 1858 – 1983 and for the first time researchers will be able to browse the catalogue of Darvel Burgh online. This collection contains a wide variety of records including Town Council minute books, Dean of Guild plans and the financial records of the Burgh.

This is the second East Ayrshire Burgh catalogue to be made accessible online and has resulted in a number of additional records being made available to the public for the first time. These records are available to view at the Burns Monument Centre in Kilmarnock on Wednesday’s through an appointment with Ayrshire Archives HQ.
