Enquiries and Charges

Research Enquiries

In recent years there has been a marked increase in the number of genealogical and historical enquiries, which incurs costs in both time and manpower. A search fee of £30.00 is charged and while all is done to answer these enquiries as fully as our archive permits by our small staff of one, a successful search cannot be guaranteed, in this instance the search fee is not refundable.

Please take note that the records we hold are limited.

Due to volume of enquiries related to the WW1 Centenary and the Waterloo Bicentenary museum capacity is now at full stretch, therefore no further historical enquires can be accepted until further notice, probably not until July.

Our records include:
Royal Scots Enlistment books (1920 c1942)
Battalion War Diaries
Rolls of Honour
Casualty lists of the First World War
Prisoner of war lists for the Second World War
Regimental Journal (1890 Present)
Battalion Roll Books (Not for every Battalion)


Our records do not include:
Service records
Medal Rolls


See our "Researching a Royal Scot" page for more information on where to find information on individual soldiers.
