Wirral Archives Service offers a research service for family history and local history enquiries that are too time-consuming for our usual free enquiry service. 

The first 30 minutes are free and this includes an initial assessment of the research proposal. The charge is £20 for each subsequent hour, up to a maximum of five hours. There are additional fees for related services such as photocopying and printing.

If you are unsure whether Wirral Archives Service holds the records you are interested in, feel free to contact us:

Research results

The results of the research will be sent in the form of a typed report. In some cases photocopies of entries may be supplied, if this is the most appropriate way of presenting the results of the search. Where we can, advice on any further possible lines of enquiry will be provided.
