Ellicia's testimonials:

Dear Anglia Research,

I would like to compliment and thank your case worker Ellicia Petersen whom I have just spoken with regarding her efforts to trace all surviving relatives of my late cousin. May I say that her customer care, sympathetic manner and personal gentleness & consideration are absolutely exemplary. Ellicia is a wonderful asset to your organisation and it would have been thoughtless of me in the extreme had I not taken the time to let you know that.

As someone who has worked with customer facing organisations all my life, I found her overall approach to be of the highest order, and praiseworthy in every respect.

— Gerard Hennessy

I particularly would like to thank Elicia Petersen who I found very helpful at a sad time for me on hearing of my cousin's demise. She handled all my enquiries with an informed and sympathetic manner and helped me to get in touch with my long-lost family for which I cannot thank her enough.

The mystery of the unknown relative and a small inheritance was made easy to understand thanks to the professional, warm and approachable manner of Ellicia Petersen.

My thanks to Anglia Research for their advice and support throughout this unique experience.

Great service.... Ellicia Petersen took a few details over the phone from me and then sorted everything out and i got a cheque.... What more could you ask for.... Many thanks Ellicia and Anglia Research.

I would like to thank Ellicia for all of the support that she has given my family. She excelled in her listening and supporting skills and was always prepared to go the extra mile where possible. We could trust her to always come back to us with an answer to our questions.

I have forwarded your findings to my sister.... She'll be so interested in the conclusion of this project. May I thank your company for getting so far with the research – where all the other groups who contacted us have failed.

This has all been a very big shock to us but I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your help and support in the process.
