Visit Kingston History Centre

Research service

If you are unable to visit personally, we offer a limited research service.


We undertake a minimum of half an hour's work, (the first half hour is free, subsequent hours incur a charge) and a maximum of three hours work. Our charges include VAT, postage, and up to five photocopies:

  • £15 per half hour

If your research will take more than half an hour we will contact you with an estimate.

We accept payment by credit and debit card, and cash. Official invoices can be raised if bank transfer is the preferred method of payment.

You can submit your request to our research service by completing and returning the Record search application form. Remember to be as clear and concise as possible to avoid confusion.

For more information about making copies of items held by the Heritage Service see Reproduction services.
