We've had a busy start to 2015 this month with millions of new records added and exciting new features introduced...

New Search Navigation

Following on from your feedback, we've introduced some brand new features to our search facility. Record categories will now be listed along the left-hand side of your screen when you're searching, making it easier and quicker for you to find what you're looking for. When you perform a search you'll see the number of matches per category and sub category in the menu on the left of your screen. The new search is in beta form at the moment so you'll be given the option to opt-out on each screen if you'd prefer to use the original search.
