Family History Research

4 constablesThe Museum does research for those wishing to find details of a past officer who served in any of the forces which were once part of Cheshire. These records are being added to all the time as the collection grows.

We have the Enrolment records, Force General Orders from 1857, the Marriage Records from 1845 and databases of names culled from other records.

First try the on-line catalogue entering the surname in the description field, and the marriage records. If the details are not found or you want more information fill in the ENQUIRY FORM with all the details you know and we will search all our records. This initial search is free of charge.

If records are found then full details will be available for a small charge (usually £10), depending on the amount of work involved. You can also request copies of photographs. We will contact you and advise you of the cost.
You can pay by Paypal or debit/credit card using the link on the left.

See a sample of the kind of report we can offer.

We also do research into any historical policing incident in our area, however records on these are sparse.

Please note: Some details may not be available to the public due to data protection restrictions. Some information is restricted to relatives only.
