Prices 2018


We are a small outfit and we enjoy building relationships with our clients. A good proportion of our business comes from satisfied customers coming back for more. Our professional hourly rates are flexible depending on your requirements, and include flat fees and capped rates for time-hungry projects.

For new clients, don’t forget that hourly rates for some services are charged in increments of 15 minutes. We also charge by increments of 30 minutes.

It might be more cost-effective than you think to hire a well-rehearsed professional to do the job.

Professional work

Hourly rates are £25-£80 and word counts are £15 per 100 words. Estimates are available. We are open to negotiating flat fees or capped rates.

Out-of-pocket expenses

Visits to holdings and archives may entail expenses on items such as camera permits, access permits &c. Out-of-pocket expenses of this type are invoiced at cost price to the client.

Travel expenses may also apply. We advise in advance regarding proposed costs.

Invoicing & payment

You are provided with a fully-itemised invoice for each commission. Payment is in GBP.

Free of charge

We do not charge travel expenses for visits to The National Archives at Kew although other out-of-pocket expenses as above at cost may apply.

All preliminary enquiries are free.

We offer professional advice free of charge as a matter of course if it can be addressed in a preliminary enquiry in response to a specific question. This means that if we have some resources at our fingertips that costs us nothing to share, then we share.
