Dear Reader,

I would like to tell you about a small business I have just set up to provide you with some historical services.

I  research and write biographies of Great War ancestors, using all the resources (and more) which have been utilised in the writing of the biographies on The Imperishable Record. 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.

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. Essentially, I am keen to discuss any needs you might have. Please feel free to get in touch.

All the Best,

Stephen Roberts
