We produce a list of record searchers who will undertake paid research.
This list helps people who want to consult our records but cannot visit the Norfolk Record Office (NRO) in person and the record searchers by publicising their services.
If you are employing a record searcher for the first time, write to two or three of them.
Ask how much they charge and what degree of experience they have in the type of research you want to commission.
Please send a stamped addressed envelope: all the record searchers in this list have agreed to reply to inquirers who do this.
Inclusion in the record searchers’ list does not imply a guarantee of competence nor constitute a recommendation by the NRO.
However, we feel that clients are entitled to certain standards of service.
We strongly suggest that record searchers should follow best practice guidelines: these are listed at the end of this guide.

All complaints which we receive about record searchers are investigated. If such complaints are found to be justified, record searchers are removed from the list.
