History Research Service


I have 20 years experience in researching history. I have used the British Library, the National Archives and local archives and record offices all over the UK as well as internet websites such as Ancestry and Find My Past. Over the years, I have tended to specialise in British history from 1800 onwards, but I am happy to consider any kind of history project.


What I provide

Detailed research in an area specified by the client.

A comprehensive report of my research. This will usually take the form of a Word document, a PDF, or another format chosed by the client.

How much will it cost?

As every research task is different, I consider the work required to complete each one on an individual basis, before providing a quotation. If it is necessary for me to travel to an archive, I will also need to include travel expenses in my final invoice. I always advise well in advance if I think that travel will be required as part of the research. Most of the time it will be possible to include travel expenses in the initial quotation.If I can help you with a research task, please contact meBefore I start each research task, I always give as honest and accurate estimation as I can of the time it is likely to take. I also make sure that I regularly update the client on the progress of the research.
