Research Services

The Resource Centre houses the Society’s Indexes and Book Library.  Volunteers from the Society will undertake research using mainly our own resources and, if required, they have access to several genealogy websites.

****** Coronavirus - Restrictions *******

The Coronavirus pandemic restrictions mean that we will not be able to use the facilities of our Resource Centre, but feel free to contact us  and we will provide what advice we can.


Research Request:

For all research enquiries, send an email to the Research Administrator, the email address is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

On receipt of your email your request will be checked to see whether we can help.  If we can, a confirmation email will be sent asking for permission to proceed.  It will set out our terms and costs (normally £5.00 per hour). When permission has been received, a log book number will be sent to you and your enquiry will then be dealt with by one of our research team volunteers.
