The Research Service

Using the Society Research Service

The volunteers who operate the Research Team have access to all the Society resources. As well as carrying out routine research they use their Family History skills to help you break down that brickwall.  Research is not limited to the Huddersfield & District area – we can help research across a much wider field. One of our volunteers specialises in Military research using his collection of Military reference books. In order to help meet its running expenses it is essential for the Society to make a charge based on the time required for carrying out Searches and Research.

Stage 1, Your Request
Please send details (including Membership No if applicable)


  • by post to The Research Team at the Society address.

Please, just one request at any one time and await a reply before sending another request.

Stage 2, The cost

On receipt of your request the Research team will investigate the extent of the research required and calculate the cost on the basis of £6.00 per hour for Society Members or £8.00 per hour for non-members. No additional charge is made for UK Postage but, unless the results can be sent by email, the Society will include the additional cost of Overseas postage.  It is our aim to send this information within 14 days of receipt of your request.

Stage 3, Payment

Payment for research and searches can now be made either:

  • Online using the PayPal Secure Server, by using the “Donate” button below. Payments  can be made via personal PayPal accounts, or by Credit or Debit Card. You do not need a PayPal account to pay for your research by this method.

  • Using a sterling cheque drawn against a bank with an international branch based in London, or by sterling International Money Order (to avoid currency conversion charges). Please then send by post to The Research Co-Ordinator at the Society address.

Stage 4..
The research team will send the results to you by post or email, whichever is most appropriate.
