Fees for research are levied on a not-for-profit basis and are used to fund the conservation and maintenance of the museum and its archives. The charge for a Basic Enquiry is £50.00, or £100 for a more detailed Advanced Enquiry.
Fees are paid in advance, but you will be contacted and your payment refunded (less a £10 administration fee) if we find we are unable to complete a research report to our usual standard or are unable to include the level of detail usually covered by the tier of enquiry you have submitted. Please make sure you have read the details on our main Research Page before submitting your enquiry.
If there is more information potentially available and therefore more time is needed, you will be advised in advance. In some cases this may result in a quotation for additional work. To start your research enquiry please choose which type of search you would like, then complete at least 2 parts in section 1.
