Transcription Service

Have an old document with terrible handwriting that is holding up your research?

Our Transcription Service can help by producing a more readable version of those records and let you move your research forwards.

We can help with:

  • English language documents from the medieval period onwards
  • Records from our own collections as well as from elsewhere

You will receive a typed transcript of your document with notes on edits made by both the original author and the transcriber.

The charge for this service is £45 per hour.

To discuss your requirements please get in touch with us on or 01284 741212.

If you’d like information on the meaning or background of a document, please see our research service.
