The Diocese of Perth archive collection contains diaries, journals, minute books and other records of Anglican churches, organisations, missions, orphanages, schools and colleges within Western Australia.

We also hold maps and architectural plans relating to Anglican churches in the state and a collection of photographic prints, negatives, transparencies and lantern slides which date from the 19th century to the present day.

Objects within the archives include vestments, crosiers and seals which document the ceremonial and episcopal life of the Church. Parish registers recording baptisms, marriages and burials are held within the collection and are important resources in genealogy and family history.

The collection has been identified as having state and national significance. To access the collection or donate to the collection, please contact the archivist at

We would like to invite people with an interest in archives to consider volunteering with Diocesan Archives.
