Family historians may be able to learn more about the lives of ancestors who worked in the UK’s postal service after the launch of a new website.

As well as an updated version of its online catalogue, now featuring more than 95,000 fully searchable records, the site also includes written pieces from archivists and curators on a range of topics covering stamp design, uniforms and the Great Train robbery.

“The British postal service has a hugely rich history and the British Postal Museum & Archive’s collection has a massive potential audience of those interested in British social history and the postal service,” says Ian Budden, Principal at Mind Unit, the company who developed the site.

The aim of the design company was to “bring the amazing collection to life online”. Mind Unit seem to have achieved this with a host of new images and online exhibitions with improved presentation to showcase what the museum has to offer.
