If we are unable to find the appropriate census return then
the full fee still applies, as we will have spent time researching it.
The method of payment can be arranged to suit the client’s
preference, wherever possible. The client can restrict the costs to be incurred, by
establishing a cost ceiling.
The timescale for completing the work obviously depends on
the scope of the project, however, Relative Strangers estimates a research time of around 2 weeks per generation. Relative Strangers will keep you regulary informed about the progress of your research at regular intervals.
