Research keyboard

We want you to be able to find exactly what you’re looking for when searching The Gazette. But with a digital archive containing millions of notices and publications dating back to 1665, it’s understandable that sometimes you may need a little help.

If you need extra support, or just don’t have the time to look through The Gazette’s extensive library of records, The Gazette Research Service's team of experts will complete an in-depth search of our archives and indexes.

The Gazette Research Service can help search for:

  • soldier promotions
  • military medals and honours
  • New Year and Birthday Honours recipients
  • personal and corporate insolvency records
  • deceased estates notices
  • company information

To complete a search, all we need is a few details about what it is you’re looking for. Once we’ve found the record, we’ll send you a thorough and personalised pdf document with the results.

“The speed, helpfulness and the success of the research was great and helpful." Steve - Wiltshire, UK

“I was delighted that The Gazette’s Research Service was able to find the details of my uncle’s Military Cross award; he served as a Tank Commander in The Royal Welsh Fusiliers in WW1. The commemorative edition I bought is a lovely keepsake my family and I will treasure.” Gareth - York, UK
