Researching Family/ Military History?

The RWF Research Enquiries Serviceimage

The information that we hold in our archives is primarily historical records of the RWF, their antecedent regiments and units. Information and photographs can be found for a limited number of RWF soldiers via the enquiries service, but this cannot be guaranteed. There is a modest charge for this service.

The RWF Museum Reserve Collection and RWF Research Library are held at Wrexham Museum and Archives, Regent St, Wrexham, LL11 1RB. This is part of a long-term agreement between the RWF Museum Trust and Wrexham County Borough Council.

Online Enquiries

Like many other museums, there will be a modest charge for any research work undertaken at the Wrexham archive. Please follow the link below, which will take you to the two payment options and enquiry form based on the size and complexity of your particular enquiry.


The RWF Research Library can also be accessed in person at the fully equiped research facility within Wrexham Museum and Archives. We would recommend calling ahead to book an appointment, to ensure that the documents requested are available.
