Professional researchers

The Archives cannot undertake research on behalf of clients. However, the Reference Archivist can provide advice on what is held at the Archives and which records would be most helpful in answering research queries. In addition, the Centre maintains a list of independent researchers who are willing to carry out research for a fee. Arrangements should be made directly with the researcher. As such arrangements are private, the Centre does not accept responsibility for any work undertaken by the professional researcher.
