Research Service and Courses
If you can’t visit the library, we can do some research on your behalf.
Enquiry and research service
If you can’t visit the library, we can do research on your behalf. We can look for information in the records we hold, including family history and local history resources. We often do checks in parish registers, census returns and local newspapers, as well as conducting more extensive research using our local history and archive collections.
If you’re interested in this service, email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01733 864160 for further information. Or if you’re ready to put in an order for some research then please fill in and return the form at the bottom of this page. You should hear back from us in about 10 days.
