Position: Case Manager


Phone: 01473 344942

I can’t pinpoint one area of genealogy that interests me more than others. I genuinely enjoy the whole lot. However, I like the challenge of starting a new case with very little information – you can never predict in advance the depth of research that each case will require. Speaking with a wide variety of characters on a daily basis also makes me smile.

Matthew spent many years conducting research and analysis for intelligence units within the Metropolitan Police, including working for the royalty protection team.

“Apart from the qualities required for research, I think it’s important for a case manager to be approachable, open and straightforward,” he says. “I hope any potential beneficiaries I work with will feel able to contact me at any time.”

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

Matthew's testimonials:

Dear Mr Boardman
I am writing to thank you very much indeed for all the work you have carried out on my behalf in respect of the estate of my cousin... I have, in the past, seen programmes about the work of firms such as yours on the television, but never for a moment expected to be in a position to be contacted by one! This has been a new experience for me, and you have made the whole process extremly straightforward, for which I am very grateful.
—Paul Reynolds

handwritten testimonial

I want to take the opportunity to thank you and Matthew Boardman for the very pleasant collaboration over the administration of this estate in recent months. It was a pleasure to work with you both. Everything was handled with great care and professionalism and the many complexities of tidying up the estate were, it seems to me, handled in a smooth and efficient way.
