The Heraldry Register (The Armorial Register Ltd)

The Heraldry Register is owned and operated by The Armorial Register Limited and is totally integrated with The Armorial Register - International Register of Arms website.

All registrations now being accepted for The Armorial Register - International Register of Arms online Armorial (the Register), will be included in the future publication of Volume 3.

Volume 3 of The Register will be a matching book to the recently published Volume 1 (Registrations 1-183) and Volume 2 (Registrations 184-366) building a fully illustrated record of contemporary Coats of Arms used internationally.

The primary mission of the Register is to compile and offer to the public a comprehensive database of personal, corporate and ecclesiastical arms in use throughout the world. Registration is open to citizens and entities of all countries provided they satisfy the terms and conditions set out below.

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.

Who may register?

Anyone may submit an application for registration provided their armorial bearings conform to the acceptance policy. Registration is subject to the payment of a fee. Simply complete the appropriate on-line application form. Registrants receive a unique registration number and the information is placed in the online database and included in the published volumes of The Register.

Publication of registered arms

All registrations are published on The Armorial Register - International Register of Arms website. A certificate of registration is also provided A full colour personalised enhanced certificate may be purchased separately at an additional cost. Bound volumes of registrations are sent to the British Library and are available to purchase.

Other services available

In addition to registration, The Armorial Register provides a range of fee-based heraldic services. These services include certificates, heraldic artwork, and design consultation. For further information please contact us.

Image policy

The Registry sells certificates to individuals containing only the heraldic images owned by that individual. We do not sell, in any form, any images to persons or entities that do not own the images. Nor do we display or store any images unless they are conveyed to us with permission to display them by the owner of the images. Armigers must purchase an entry in The Armorial Register in order to have their images displayed on this website or in its publications.
