I actually love all aspects of my work, but ‘hearing’ people smile when they find out they’ve got family they never knew existed is most rewarding.

Imogen joined Anglia Research in 2014 as a trainee probate genealogist. A Russian and French graduate from the University of Birmingham, she has several years’ experience working in the legal arena, specialising in personal injury litigation and legal costs – roles in which she developed strong analytical and communication skills.

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

Imogen's testimonials:

Just to say that Imogen has been such a godsend to us in our research.... The proposal we’re sending off this evening would have been a shadow of itself without her contribution, so, an enormous thank you from all of us here. And, if things develop I hope you wouldn’t mind us being in touch again, or indeed for similar projects.

Your prompt and efficient assistance in dealing with our enquiry has again been very much appreciated.

Last year I was contacted by Imogen to discuss my late uncle’s estate. I did not sign with Anglia Research but I wish I had.

Even though I didn’t sign up with Anglia Research, Imogen still emailed me to check how everything was and if I received the estate etc. I asked her if there was an email I could send to commend her on her services... I really hope I have been able to compliment her on her services as I really appreciate her help and support.

Dear Ms Benneworth,
After being totally absorbed and entranced by the BBC series “A House Though Time” I wanted, by way of this letter, to thank you for the pivotal role you played in getting this series to air. I suspect the ‘legwork’ required to be filling out the portraits of the individual people passing through 62 Falkner Street to have been assiduous and questing, so... good job! The series was a joy to watch.
— With best wishes, K Stuart
