The Armorial Register

Why register a coat of arms? Whether your coat of arms has been granted by an heraldic authority, has been inherited or you have assumed it anew, registration can have the following benefits:
  • Registration ensures that the arms will be published in The Armorial Register’s Volumes which are printed and deposited in the British Library and other libraries internationally. All editions are available to purchase as an addition to your own family library.

  • Deposit libraries include: The Bodleian Library Oxford University; The Cambridge University Library; National Library of Scotland; National Library of Wales; Trinity College Dublin and The British Library.

  • Registration allows a person or organisation to record and display their coat of arms in a publicly accessible online database 'The International Register of Arms'.

  • A complete record of the International Register online database will be archived by British Library UK Web Archive approximately twice every year. This means that a complete record of the website and all changes to its content will be recorded. Thus building a permanent picture of the site’s development and expanding content for years to come.

  • Registration distinguishes inherited and original heraldic designs from bogus "surname coats of arms" and "family crests."

  • Registration in our publicly searchable database can prevent others from unintentionally assuming the same coat of arms.

  • Registration creates a documented date-certain for the use of the arms, which can settle disputes if someone later claim the same design. All registrants will receive a simple certificate in .pdf format and can also purchase an additional quality sealed certificate for framing.

  • Registration allows the arms to be stored in standardised, written form, called a "blazon," which stabilises the design and allows it to be more easily preserved and transmitted and to be found in an electronic search.

  • Registered entries can include the design rationale and history of the arms, preserving the information for the public and future generations.

  • Registration of a personal coat of arms in honour of a parent or grandparent creates an enduring memorial and a symbol of family identity to all the honouree’s offspring.

  • Registration of non-personal arms helps promote the organisation's visibility on the internet.
