We specialise in house history. That’s all we do. And it means we’re experts at finding your property in the records. We know what to look for and where to find it.

We’re local. We are regular users of archives in the West Midlands and are familiar with their holdings and finding aids. It means we can get on with the job right away.

We’re flexible. We can do as little or as much research as you want. We can focus on those aspects of your property’s history that are important to you. We can do it all in one go or in stages.

We’re professional. In all our dealings with you we will be professional, honest and fair. We don’t just give you a set of documents. We explain the sources we have used, what the information means and how it relates to your property’s history. We use meticulous research techniques and intelligent interpretation of material to investigate your house history. We provide citations for all the source material we have referenced in our research. You can be confident of a professional job well done.

We love what we do – and it shows. Enthusiasm and energy combined with rigorous research and a methodical and professional approach are the trademarks of our work. We invite you to share our passion for old buildings and their history.

It’s a fascinating journey – contact us to find out how to get started!
