Barking Town Surveys
My first Survey of Barking Town & shops was carried out in November 1988, in prelude to the building of the Vicarage Field Shopping Centre, and the Northern Relief Road. This was intended to record the major changes within the town at the time. I have since followed this up with 3 further surveys in November 1993, December 1998 and July/August 2004. The latter Survey is shown on this site and a fully searchable version is available in Microsoft Access. Electronic paper copies of the other surveys are also available.
I offer a research facility for a reasonable cost for those interested in Barking & Dagenham. This may be useful to long distance residents or those overseas, but All are welcome though! Please note that I do not carry out genealogical research, barring a directory or name search of the surveys, parish records or other records which I have.
Please note that just to search the records I possess takes time, so although this part of the service is initially free if you feel like giving a donation please feel free to do so. Firstly please e-mail any requirements you have to MrIVickers@AOL.com
I shall get back to you ASAP, stating what information I have, or what I can obtain for you, and how long the research would take.
Much of the information on this web site is provided free of charge. If you would like to make a donation towards the upkeep of this site, please feel free to do so. This will enable me to add more features, and to upgrade to a more powerful 'ad-free' account.
