Research and Guiding Services Offered By The Founder of the Website

Dear Reader,

Stephen Roberts

Stephen Roberts

I have been a history teacher for over 30 years, but beginning at the end of July this year, I will be starting a new phase in my career: I am investing the skills and knowledge I have acquired as the result of being a trained historian, teacher, researcher and author into a small business which provides a unique combination of services.

You might have enjoyed reading the biographies on this website which have been written either by myself or by one of my colleagues. I can write biographies of your ancestors using the same resources and more. I offer a professional and friendly service at prices which are affordable and graduated according to the size of the biography which the available sources make it possible to write. Have a look at my business website for more details or ask me about it directly via email (address at the bottom of the page).

I am also a battlefield guide: I plan and lead bespoke tours, for groups of any size, to any of the historic places in Northern France and Belgium, but especially to those associated with the Great War. It might be that you would like to retrace the steps of an ancestor or military unit or that you would like to learn about particular battles or see certain memorials. Simply discuss your ideas with me and I will arrange a suitable package for you.

I love the history and landscape of Britain and enjoy organising fascinating and personalised tours of British battlefields and historic sites. I have a special interest in the Romans in the North of England and can arrange tours of Hadrian’s Wall as well as of Roman towns such as Chester. Other areas of expertise include the English Civil War, The Jacobite Rebellions of 1715 and 1745 and the impact of the Slave Trade on the North West of England. If you live overseas and are hoping to visit the U.K and to take in some of our rich history and heritage, I will be delighted to create an itinerary for you and, if you wish, to act as a guide. Essentially, I am keen to discuss any needs you might have. Please feel free to get in touch.

Thank you for reading this page. I hope to hear from you soon.

All the Best,

Stephen Roberts

  1. I can endorse Stephen Robert’s qualities as a writer and researcher – I reviewed his History of Wirral some years ago.

  2. An excerpt from my review.

    “Roberts’ book, which is aimed at the intelligent general reader, is comprehensive, well-researched and well-illustrated. It begins with the geology of Wirral, takes us through its pre-History and medieval and modern History, up to the twentieth century. Its approach is through the political, economic and social History of the Hundred, set in a chronological framework. It is difficult to pull off such a feat in an era of extreme specialisation, but the author does it very well indeed.”
