Genealogist and Family Historian
Before you pay for any research hours it would be advisable to contact me before hand either using the free half hour assessment by phone or by email giving full but concise details of your enquiry.
Any expences incurred during the research, such as purchase of certificates, copies of documents, travel, are not included in the hourly fee.
Payments may be made through your PayPal account if you have one. You can also pay by credit or debit card with PayPal without the need to create an account. Such payments are transferred by PayPal's secure servers.
If you prefer to pay by cheque and you are in the UK or if you live outside of the UK but hold a sterling bank account then you can simply forward a cheque to me for the appropriate amount. If you live outside of the UK and don't have a sterling bank account, your bank can arrange an international money order or bank draft in sterling.
LOCATION PHOTOGRAPHY: Fees for this service start at £65 and would include travel expenses within the local area - see here. A minimum of 10 photographs would be supplied. For locations further afield the fees would be higher depending on travel distance. General tidying of graves before photographs are taken is included - that is so the headstone can be seen and, hopefully, read. Cleaning of the headstone is not included - see below for those fees.
HEADSTONE CLEANING: The cost is dependent on the size of the memorial and distance travelled to the job. Those examples shown here were £45-£70. If the headstone is one that I have previously photographed I would be able to give an immediate quote. Other pricing would depend on a visit to the location or sight of your own photograph. A site visit would be charged according to area and distance; the job could be done immediately with your prior agreement provided the memorial is suitable for cleaning. Kerbstones and additional urns would not be included in the price and would need to be costed separately.
