List of local research agents

The following is a list of private Record Agents who are willing to undertake research at Cornwall Record Office and in some cases elsewhere. Arrangements must be made directly between the person commissioning the search and the Record Agent. The fees charged by independent agents for work varies greatly. This is a private matter between enquirer and independent researcher. Cornwall Record Office cannot be held responsible for any work carried out by local agents. Inclusion on this list does not imply a recommendation by Cornwall Record Office.
