Archives Researcher

I visit the main archives in London regularly and can visit any repository within the M25 by arrangement. I can also conduct research at the Hertfordshire Archives and the Essex Record Office. I am happy to take on simple document retrieval assignments or more substantial research projects at archives.

I regularly research at:

  • The National Archives, Kew
  • The British Library, including the India Office Collection
  • London Metropolitan Archives
  • Westminster Archives
  • The Society of Genealogists library
  • The Guildhall Library

I charge a minimum fee equivalent to only one hour of research at each London archive. Any direct expenses, e.g. for copying or photography, are recharged at cost, in addition to my fee. I do not charge for travel time or expenses for any London archive.

For research at Hertfordshire Archives or the Essex Record Office please enquire.

For more details on my fees please take a look at my Fees page.
