Privicy Policy

Only persons who are deceased, or are assumed to be deceased by reason of age, will appear in the individual record index pages (RiD's). No restriction will be placed on the information published about such individuals if such information is publicly available elsewhere. Any other information may be added or witheld at my discretion.
This site will not contain any information about an individual who is living, or has died leaving living parents, without the specific consent of the next of kin. For the purpose of this policy, in the absence of any other information, an individual will be treated as deceased 100 years after their actual or estimated birth date.

However, a lot of work over many years, and some financial investment, has gone into collating this information, so if you do wish to publish any of this data, please have the courtesy to let me know and provide an acknowledgement of this site.

This site also contains personal photographs and images of non-statutory documents and text provided by me or others. These images are watermarked and contain copyright meta-data and use of these images is STRICTLY FORBIDDEN without the specfic consent of the owner of the image concerned. This consent can be sought by contacting me via the Email link in the footer of each page giving full details of the proposed use of the data. I will consider your request (and seek approval from any third party as necessary) and will respond to you as soon as reasonably possible. However, please note that my decision, or that of the copyright holder, on any request, is final and bindng.
The site also contains copies of statutory documents (such as census returns), which are generally available to download via many "pay to view" sites. These documents remain © Crown Copyright Images and are reproduced by courtesy of The National Archives, London, England. Use of these documents is licensed under the Open Government Licence.
