Many of our historical records were destroyed when Trinity House suffered fires in 1666, 1714 and bombing in 1940.
At Trinity House we hold Service Lists for the Lighthouse, Lightvessel and Steam Vessel Service staff covering the years 1894, 1899, 1903 and 1910. Records for staff post 1920 may be held by our Pensions Department. To enquire about a former member of staff please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please be advised that time and resource do not permit us to undertake frequent searches of our surviving archive which means you may wait six to eight weeks for a response to your enquiry.
