Service Update: Between 8th December 2018 and 2nd January 2019 the REME Museum and its Archive will be closed for maintenance. The Archives will be unable to deal with enquiries during this period; normal service will resume in the New Year.

Our Archives and Object collections are open to the public to access and research. In order to do this, you will need to book an appointment during opening hours, details of which can be found on the Visit page.

For information on costs and procedures please see below.

Family History

The Museum offers an ‘Interpretation Service’ of military records of service. By using the record of service obtained from the Ministry of Defence (MoD) Army Personnel Center, together with added material from the Archives and general references on Army history, we are able to produce a ‘potted’ history of the person’s time in the Army.

The Archives do not hold information on individuals, these are held centrally by the MoD.

If you would like to have an interpretation done, the first step is to apply to the Army Personnel Centre in Glasgow for the individual’s record of service:

Once you have received the records, please contact archives@rememuseum.org.uk to arrange to have an interpretation done. A fee is charged for this service.
