This site features pages about nearly 250 companies that have come together over the centuries to form today’s NatWest Group. As well as a brief history of each company, the pages give details of publications about them, an overview of relevant records in our archives and links to other archives which also hold related records.

You can browse the companies either alphabetically by bank name or geographically (UK banks only). Note that banks are only listed under the region of their head office location. Many also operated branches in other regions.

The list only includes each bank’s current or last trading name. If you are looking for a name and can’t find it here, it may be an earlier or alternative version. Try searching this site for all or part of the name.
