The historical monographs relating to St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle are a series of scholarly publications supported by the Dean and Canons of Windsor.[1] Much of the scholarship is based on the material held in the archives at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.


In 1939 the Rev. E.H. Fellowes, Minor Canon of St George’s Chapel, published a list of the Knights of the Garter from 1348-1939 along with a complete list of the stall plates in St George’s Chapel. This was to be the first in a series of historical monographs relating to St George’s Chapel which today comprises nineteen volumes, the most recent of which was published in 2014. Fellowes himself authored or edited five of these volumes. Sidney Leslie Ollard was the general editor of the series until 1949.

The purpose of the series of historical monographs was to take advantage of the then comparatively unexplored wealth of material about the history of the Chapel contained in the Chapel Archives; to conduct thorough research into it and to share that research with a wide audience. By the early twenty-first century, however, many of the monographs are now out of print and have become difficult to get hold of. In order to further their original purpose of sharing the Chapel’s history, those out-of-print volumes have been digitised and are now freely available to be downloaded and read via the St George's Chapel Archives & Chapter Library.[2]
