Local History Books

The Carnegie Heritage Centre inherited the book stock from Chris Ketchell’s Local History Unit and this has been supplemented over the years to a stock of over 4,700 items.These are arranged in three main areas: Hull Books; East Yorkshire and beyond; and General Books, the latter mainly concentrating on the two World Wars.

The stock is fully catalogued and available for use in the Carnegie Heritage Centre.

A large collection of books, researched by volunteers, funded by the Heritage Lottery and published in-house, list the Hull Area War Dead from both World Wars along with brief biographical details.

A further 200 local antiquarian books are also available in .pdf format and there is an extensive digital collection of over 4,600 digitised items including a large collection of photographs of Hull and its buildings.

Books are available to view within the centre but cannot be taken out.
