Research by staff

We have many resources to help answer your query, including:

  • Ancestry website;
  • trade directories;
  • historical electoral registers;
  • maps;
  • ephemera;
  • also, an ever-expanding photographic collection.

15 minutes of research will be carried out at no cost. After this, we will contact you to share results and to discuss the next steps.

Any information sent out at this stage will be charged at £1.50 basic fee, plus the cost of any copies.

In addition to answering short enquiries, the Reference and Information Library offers a research service for more in-depth enquiries.

In this case, a charge of £15.50 per half hour applies. This includes:

  • VAT;
  • one A4 photocopy;
  • postage.

Note: Extra copies will be charged for. A maximum of one hour and fifteen minutes can be spent on each enquiry.

For more information or to request some research, contact: Central Library and Archive (Halifax).
