Research Service and Donation of objects or archive


The NMRN closed its Research Enquiry Service at the beginning of 2019 while our entire Curatorial Team worked on large scale collections moves.  The pandemic delayed the work and the moves continued until the end of 2021.

From May 2022, visiting researchers will be able to book an appointment to look at collection material, archive documents and photographs.   From May, please see our website to make an appointment.

Anyone wishing to find out details of a relative in the Royal Naval Air Service or the Fleet Air Arm should note that service records for RN personnel serving up to the early 1920s are held at the National Archives. Service records for personnel serving after the early 1920s, including anyone serving during the Second World War, are closed records and are held by the Ministry of Defence.


Offers of donation of objects or archive material should be made to [email protected] .
