There is no charge for a brief email response to initial enquiries, to which I endeavour to respond by email as soon as possible. Thereafter the charge will be £25 an hour plus expenses (which include such as travel to research material held outwith Edinburgh, the cost of reproduction of documents etc.).
Please state the nature of your enquiry as fully as possible and, if you wish, you might place a limit on your expenditure on the research. Please intimate if there is any timescale on your enquiry; this will enable me to respond honestly and accurately to your request. Once the research is accepted, I will always keep you regularly informed by email on progress.
Payment is on completion of any work commissioned, unless the work is of a scale that requires it to be broken into segments; any such arrangement will be by mutual agreement in writing prior to the commencement of work.
I accept payment by:
- bank transfer (will supply details)
- Sterling cheque
- Sterling bank draft
We undertake archival research projects of all sizes
