Closed records can be opened via TNA:    From FindMyPast website


Iím not a subscriber to FindMyPast, how can I request the opening of an officially closed record?
Answer:
If you are not a Findmypast subscriber, please contact The National Archives to request a search of closed records within the 1939 Registers.
If your request is successful, we will receive notification and instruction directly from The National Archives to open the record.
