About Us

My name is Simon Cawthorne. I set up archiveresearchUK in 2006 as a document photography and research service for academics, authors, TV production, and UXO salvage companies. This can be as simple as photographing a pre-defined, pre-researched list of file references or as involved as a full-service research project.

All our work is delivered digitally so you can download to your computer, in your time at your own pace. If you need research or photography at other locations in the UK, please get in touch too – we do travel further! And if we can’t get to an archive ourselves, we will usually know someone who can.

So if your project, book or dissertation has stalled in the face of a long list of documents or a hefty travel expense, consider hiring an archive photographer to get your plan back on track.
