How we work

We carry out a comprehensive search for documentary evidence of a soldier’s time in the British Army; interpret the details found; and create a timeline narrative so that you can understand exactly what happened to him, when and why.

For details of the steps we take, what we search, what we produce, how we engage with you as a customer and what this all costs, see How we work

Happy clients

Thank you very much for your eagerly awaited report.  You have certainly put a lot more ‘meat’ on the bone than I had been able to. I have just paid your invoice and consider it money very well spent as it answers so many questions I had about my grandfather.  Unfortunately I never met him, as I wasn’t born until October 1954, which was some 18 months after he passed away. Anyway thank you once again.  Please feel free to use any part of this email as feedback on your website.
