Report a Find: Important instructions

We will endeavour to respond to your reported find as quickly as possible if you complete the 'Your Details' section of the form. Do not feel you have to answer all the questions, if they are not relevant to the object(s).

If you are able to send or email any photographs, sketches or documents related to the find(s) this would greatly help our research. Accompanying information about any photographs or documents that you send us such as photographer's or author's details, dates and locations would also be welcome. Please clearly indicate whether you would like any photographs or documents returned and whether we may copy them for research purposes.
