Let our experts do the research for you

If you are unable to visit the Archives to carry out your own research or if you just need some extra help, the Historical Research Service gives you the opportunity to employ the expertise of our staff. We can search original historic records and reference works at Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire Archives to help get your search underway and can explore material which isn’t available online, saving you the time and expense of visiting.

All research will be to the highest standards and delivered to you within 15 working days of receiving your order.

The Historical Research Service (HRS) will be temporarily suspended from 1 December 2018. This is to enable archives staff to focus entirely on the necessary cleaning, repackaging and data correlation work to prepare our archive documents for the move.

We will resume the service at both Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire Archives from the Summer of 2019.

We can assist with:

  • Family history
  • House history
  • Local history
  • Historic local vehicle registrations
  • Searches of historic electoral registers or magistrates' court registers
  • Transcribing documents that may be difficult to read

We provide you with: 

Whatever your research requirements, private or commercial, we have the package to suit your needs. It cannot be guaranteed the surviving records will contain every answer. If not, you will be advised on further avenues of research as part of the service.
