Fire mu­se­ums are a great place to start your re­search, and wher­ever you live, there is sure to be one nearby. Be­low is a list of the more promi­nent ones, but you will find there are many smaller mu­se­ums dot­ted around the Bri­tish Isles, full of fire ser­vice re­lated items rang­ing from old fire ap­pli­ances, to col­lec­tions of re­lated pho­to­graphs and doc­u­ments. You will gen­er­ally find that smaller mu­se­ums, in par­tic­u­lar, are gen­er­ally run by knowl­edge­able in­di­vid­u­als, who may well be able to point your fam­ily tree en­quiries in ex­actly the right di­rec­tion. Be sure to check their web­sites be­fore you ac­tu­ally visit, as some have re­stricted vis­it­ing times or are by ap­point­ment only.
