The Henry Royce Memorial Foundation is a charity established to preserve and secure the archive material held by the motor division of Rolls-Royce Ltd.  

The collection includes photographs, memorabilia and artefacts from the life Henry Royce together with detailed records of all Rolls-Royce and most Bentley cars produced up to 2002.

The Foundation offers research facilities (by appointment), organises and presents lectures and exhibitions, and receives group visits from schools, societies and other organisations. In tune with Sir Henry’s own philosophy, it also works to encourage the work and development of apprentices and young engineers.
