Histories of companies

Do you own or work for a long-standing Oxford business and would like to know more about its history and how that relates to the commercial and social development of the city as a whole? If so, I can carry out research for you and provide text and images for your website, marketing materials or a commemorative book.

“As part of our 150th anniversary celebrations we decided to commission a book to tell the story of Kingerlee from 1868 to 2018. We were recommended to contact Liz to help us. Her in-depth historical research, audience-focused writing, and ability to source appropriate images, have been hugely appreciated. From the start she showed sensitivity, understanding and commitment which has resulted in a book that we are truly proud of.”  Michael Puttick, Managing Director, Kingerlee Ltd, June 2018.
