Historical and educational research

The Lloyd's Register Foundation Heritage & Education Centre can help you with brief general or specific shipping enquiries.

Our historic reference library, featuring the Royal Institution of Naval Architects and IMarEST collections, covers many aspects of maritime history, science, offshore, nuclear and other engineering, tribology, materials and technology. For more information on our reference library, including opening times, visit our webpage on the Lloyd's Register Foundation website.

If you are unable to visit our library, the Heritage & Education Centre offers an historical research service.
