Research and Donating

Research – Mr Mark Every is the lead researcher at the RAF Marham Aviation Heritage Centre. Research can take many forms, what we find at the centre is that families or distant relatives want to understand what happened to their loved ones when they served in the RAF. This could be as part of their own research into a family tree or simply that the family would like to know from the little evidence they have, what happened.

Mark takes each and every investigation from the start with an initial email or visit to a conclusion, informing the relative of everything he discovers. Sometimes there is very little which can be unearthed, but more often than not, he is able to bring clarity and focus to a previously unknown element of the family jigsaw.

To enable Mark to carry on with this work a donation to the centre is requested at the family or researcher discretion.

Donating – Donating to a charity can take many forms. The RAF Marham Aviation Heritage Centre has a no charge for entry policy. There is also no charge for Group visits which we deliver. We prefer to leave it to the discretion of the group or visitor to kindly place a donation in the collection box at the entrance.

Be assured, every penny donated goes towards the running, upkeep and improvement of the Centre. Should you wish to donate by Cheque, please make the cheque out to ‘Service Funds RAF Marham’ or if you would prefer to donate by bank transfer, please ask a member of staff for details.

Memorabilia Shop The RAF Marham Aviation Heritage Centre runs a small memorabilia shop where you can browse through our range of aviation related books, patches, Squadron crest engravings, mugs, t-shirts, key rings, books and prints. Again every penny spent in the shop goes directly back into supporting the Centre. Only cash or cheques made out to ‘Service Funds RAF Marham’ are accepted at this time.

Donating Historical Artefacts and Memorabilia – The Aviation Heritage Centre has an ever growing Archive of historical data, artefacts and memorabilia. The Archive helps us deliver the first class displays which we create directly from kindly donated items. It also helps us to carryout the extensive research undertaken on behalf of families and units around the world. Should you wish to donate an item or collection to the Centre, please in the first instance contact the Curator who will guide you through the process of donating. Be assured that all items donated will become part of our Archive, carefully digitised and either stored for future access or displayed within the Centre.
