Our Museum offers a prepaid research service to family historians and others seeking to trace the careers of individuals or the history of pharmacy premises.
The Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain was founded in 1841 and the society published The List of Members, Associates and Apprentices from 1841-1868.
From 1868-2010 it was compulsory for Chemists and Druggists and Pharmacists to register with the society and these registers are held by the RPS Library, along with The Register of Premises published from 1936-2010.
The Museum charges a basic search fee to non-Society members of £35 (RPS members £20) for each person or premises researched.
Please note: that we receive a very high volume of enquiries for this service. We respond in strict order according to when we have received your enquiry. We will acknowledge receipt of your request but, at our busiest periods it can take up to time to provide the full research results.
Alternatively, researchers are welcomed to undertake their own research in our Library.
