 Our last coach trip in 2017 was not to an archive for research, but to the Imperial War Museum, London, where participants were able to gain a greater understanding of the experiences and conditions faced by their (more recent) ancestors.  This trip proved so popular and attracted so many people to join us, that we feel that in 2018 we should offer another opportunity to participants to learn more about the lives our predecessors lived, this time in the navy.

Our suggestion is that we travel to Portsmouth, to enjoy a day at the Historic Dockyard.  Here you will find and be able to explore HMS Victory, HMS Warrior and the Mary Rose and visit the Royal Navy National Museum which has galleries devoted to life at sea as well as to Nelson and Victory and HMS M33, involved in the Gallipoli campaign. 

Date: Saturday April 28 2018.  Coach cost: approx £24.  Entry to Historic Dockyard and all exhibits varies according to age, but about £21-24 (adult and concession group ticket rate) or £12 (child group rate).

Please let Jenny Pope or Cy Cutler know as soon as possible if you are interested in this trip.


Society of Genealogists (SOG): SOG holds a vast collection of original research and transcribed documents from the UK and elsewhere.  In 2017 it became the custodian of 55,000 microfilms donated by the Church of the Latter Day Saints from its collection of parish records.  It also holds an extensive library of reference material and local genealogical society journals and publications. 

On Saturday June 9th 2018, SOG's senior archivist, Else Churchill - well known to many readers of family history magazines and visitors to WDYTYA - will give us a conducted tour of the library and research facilities at SOG.  Those wishing to research in the afternoon can do so for £8 - 20% off the normal charge. 

SOG is within 15-20 minutes walk from London Metropolitan Archives (open that day) and the new Postal Museum with its underground mail train, and near the London Museum at the Barbican if people are interested in visiting other venues.

Coach cost: approx £24 per person; research cost for non-SOG members: £8.00 (half-day rate)


National Archives, Kew: our current plan is to visit the National Archives on Saturday 22nd September 2018.  However, this is also the date planned for the 2nd London Family History Show at Sandown Park Surrey.  If there is interest in attending this event, we will look to travel there, and arrange an alternative date to visit Kew for personal research

Coach cost: approx £23 per person


Pick up points and times for all trips:  Westbury (6.30am)**, Devizes (7.00am) , Chippenham (7.30am) and Swindon (8.00am) .  A 15 minute comfort break will be provided if required on the outward journey.  ** a better option for Westbury-based participants for the Portsmouth trip in April may be to travel by rail and meet the coach group at Portsmouth.

 Refund Policy. The Society's policy on refunds for coach trips is that a refund will only be made when:

The Society and/or the coach company is unable, for whatever reason, to run the advertised visit. 

The person is unable to take part in the visit due entirely to unforeseen circumstances beyond their control e.g., their own indisposition or that of any immediate members of their family through death, sickness, ill-health, hospitalisation, or similar circumstance. 

In the event that neither of the above circumstances apply, a refund will only be considered if the resulting vacant seat or seats can be resold by the Society without any financial loss being incurred by the Society. 

The Executive Committee appointed Jenny Pope, Coach Organiser, to act as its arbiter in any dispute concerning a refund under the above policy.
