List of Record Searchers

Employing a Private Researcher

You can employ a private researcher to carry out your research for you. Their rates may vary from the standard charge applied by the record office. We maintain a list of private researchers who carry out work on behalf of enquirers. Please see the table towards the bottom of this page for the current list of record searchers.

Please read the following information carefully before contacting anyone on the list:

  • This is a list of individuals who have notified their willingness to undertake archive research at Warwickshire County Record Office (WCRO) on behalf of a client.
  • Inclusion on the list does not indicate that the person named has any particular level of competence to undertake archival research.
  • WCRO is unable to accept any liability whatsoever for the competence or performance of individual researchers.
  • WCRO reserves the right to refuse to include any applicant, or to remove or amend an entry, in their absolute discretion and for any reason.
  • All negotiations including those about fees between the enquirer and the searcher shall be direct.
  • Record searchers must be prepared to carry out work themselves at WCRO and not expect the staff to undertake the research on their behalf.
  • Record searchers have paid an annual fee of £50 for the first year and £25 for subsequent years to be included on this list.
