Position: Case Manager


Phone: 01473 344944

There are two main aspects to my job. The first is meeting the problem-solving challenge of putting together an accurate family tree as fast as possible from just a name and date of death. The process at this point does not show anything but the facts of the bloodlines. It is only when you contact the relatives that you are able to change the ‘facts’ into real personalities with the stories they tell. It’s at this point that the second aspect of a case manager’s work kicks in. It’s very much a gear change, because it’s imperative to take time to deal openly and sensitively with potential beneficiaries.

Christopher used his business economics degree to achieve success in management before joining Anglia Research and rising rapidly to his current position.

He holds a current paralegal practising certificate and is regulated by the PPR.

We write this letter in grateful thanks to Chris Ferry of the Ipswich office of Anglia Research and to apprise you of your colleague's work ethic and attention to detail. Chris has at all times been courteous, knowledgeable and helpful to a fault. Without his sterling efforts and continued input and help we would not have been able to achieve the result we did.
