Visiting Local Archives On Your Behalf

Many records are available online, through professional organisations who require a fee or downloadable for free. However, it is often still necessary to visit archives in person to patiently search through and interpret original documents or microfilmed copies. We are fortunate of being within reach of several major archives located in London, which hold collections of national as well as local relevance, such as The National Archives or the London Metropolitan Archives.

Many County Record Offices are also available within easy reach, such as the Surrey Record Office, Berkshire Record Office, both East and West Sussex as well as the Hampshire Record office to name but a few. These can be visited on your behalf for specific research commissioned by yourself.

We can also carry out other kinds of historical research. Contact us to find out more.
