There are several ways you can share your records with us. You can use our online recording tool or fill in an Excel spreadsheet and email it to us (

Please don't enter records into more than one online recording tool or submit them to us in more than one format, as that could result in us having multiple copies of the same record in our database.

Please read our terms and conditions for information on how your records may be used.

Please contact us if you have any questions or would like to discuss sharing your records with us. We can arrange data exchange agreements with recording groups and advise you on the best way to collate your records.
