Information Centre

Wide range of information on shipping and some other areas

We can help you with brief general or specific shipping enquiries and queries from subscribers to the Register of Ships. Our reference library in London is open to the public. If we do not know the answer to your query we may be able to refer you to another organisation.

We produce statements and Declaration of Age Certificates for the commercial sector and provide an historical research service to paying clients.

Our information sheets, downloadable from this website, cover the history of Lloyd's Register and popular maritime subjects and genealogical sources, with addresses and advice for researching areas outside the scope of our records.

To obtain copies of the current Register of Ships and other marine information publications, or for Sea-web please contact IHS Fairplay (see below).
