Legal Archive Research

Legal Record Archives

Legal archive research service covering :



We provide research services to those needing access to legal archives or without the skills to perform the research themselves. With over 25 years professional experience working in the criminal and civil courts system in England and Wales, an M.A. in Historical Research and a Phd in History, Rhiannon Markless has specialist knowledge in the field of the civil and criminal legal systems and particular skills in palaeography (reading old text).

Not everyone can undertake legal archive research in person and some records require more specialist assistance. We offer a professional research, data collection, transcription and précis service for those seeking information anywhere in The National Archives (Public Record Office), Kew, Surrey and archive repositories in central London and Surrey which hold records of the civil and criminal courts of England and Wales.
