Your genealogy resource

The Frith Collection helps bring your family history alive – a resource bursting with historical material about places associated with your family and ancestors. Look through the website for the hospitals where members of your family were born, and towns where they lived and worked; even churches where they were baptised, married or buried. The Collection often includes photos of christening fonts, altars and indeed burial grounds! We hope you enjoy using Frith to build up your family history records.

The Frith Collection as your genealogy resource

Larger format Prints

If you find photographs that are really important to you and you want to frame them, then look at ordering from our Standard or Premium Print range as gifts or for your home. You might even like to consider buying really important images as Canvas Prints as these are available in really large sizes. More about Photograph Prints

Historic Ordnance Survey Maps

As well as photographs, we also offer Historical Maps which can be centred on any town in mainland Britain, or even on an address or Postcode – since these were drawn between 1860 and 1920 they can also be helpful in seeing what an area was like in this period – before the Post War building boom.

Local history reference books

You may find Frith Books on a town or county very helpful in understanding the lives of your ancestors as our books provide an historical insight into an area and its people. Search for local books

Frith Memories Community

Don’t forget to browse the Memories contributed by our visitors for towns and individual photographs, as you might find further links there to your family – or you can request information from other visitors to the site who might know your family, or the area in which they lived.
