Research Services


Although based in the South West of England I do undertake research in other parts of the UK by arrangement.

I typically research within Devon, Somerset and Cornwall.  I also can research in the Channel Islands, Surrey, Sussex & Hampshire, Northumberland & Durham. Also Dumfries and Galloway in Scotland. These destinations are very much by arrangement and I will often tie it in with other research.

Services and Costs

I am happy to offer the following services (the list is not exhaustive!)

  • Researching ancestral lines
  • Researching businesses
  • Researching locations
  • Researching cemeteries and burials 
  • Photographic services
  • 20th Century research to get you on the path to discover your ancestors.

I provide full documentation of birth, marriage and death certificates, Census records and any other documentation gathered along the way complete with source information which is vital for the integrity of research.

Until fairly recently I had a research hourly rate and then charged further for certificates & other documents. In September 2015 I changed my business model to quote per research task, but retaining the further charge (at cost) for certificates & other documents.

If you would like to have quote for research please contact me by using the Contact Form below with as much information as you have. This is essential for an accurate quote. I will then advise of the costing and reserve the right to ask for a deposit before work begins. Payment should be in Pounds Sterling and I accept bank transfers or PayPal. For those with a UK bank account, I also accept payment by cheque.

I can also offer consultation and guidance either by email or telephone.If you would like any further details or guidance please do get in touch using the Contact Form Below
