Bespoke Pack

Most people today have computer skills and are able to undertake a reasonable part of their family history research themselves in the comfort of their own homes. Others may not familiar with the computer and need a little help getting started with their research. Some may live some distance from Cornwall and require documents that can only be obtained in person from the Record Office. Some may have encountered one of those dead ends and my philosophy has always been to put it aside for a while and then go back to it later. Sometimes it works? It may be that you have taken advantage of our Straightforward Package and want to progress your research further. History Fox would love to help and can tailor our services to fit your needs.

House History
We offer a House History service where we research the history of a home where your ancestor may have lived. Depending on the circumstances, we can cover several generations looking at local maps, wills, census returns and available information of the area at the time. Please provide details of the information you have and we will send you a no obligation estimate of what we expect the costs to be for this research.

Find a Grave
We have been asked to offer a find-a-grave service and in doing our own family history research we understand and value the importance of locating an ancestor. To track a relative can often take days of tramping over uneven and overgrown ground only to find that there is no marker. However, we do understand that after bringing ancestors to life, to find their final resting place is a form of closure and respect. We can also provide flowers and graveside photographs. Sometimes maps of graveyards are available but in my experience most are not and that is a problem. If you are planning a visit to Cornwall and hope to track or visit a grave then give us a call and we will save you time/money. Please provide details of the records you have, cemetery, date of burial and we will send you a no obligation estimate of what we expect the costs to be for this research.

The main records for Cornwall are kept at the Records Office in Truro and at The Cornish Centre in Redruth. Within the next 2 years both sites will come together in a purpose built building at the Old Brewery Site in Redruth which is a two minute walk from where I currently live. I make no charge for travel to these locations as I live so close but research at these premises is charged by the hour at £12 and photocopied documents are included. To go further afield in Cornwall the same hourly rate applies but a charge of 40p per mile is made for travel costs.
