“Sandra provided editorial services for my PhD which I submitted in 2020.
The work she completed was thorough, on time and of an excellent standard. Importantly, she understood and worked within the specific rules concerning the scope of editing work permitted for theses by my institution.
She certainly made a very stressful time a lot easier for me!”

“Surrey Hills Historical Society has benefited enormously from Sandra's excellent work, both as a researcher and meticulous and skilled editor. Her work transcribing WW1 soldier Fred Mawson's diary brought this young man's story alive. Her work tracing the men and women behind the names on The Shrine in Surrey Gardens is testament to her passion for seeking historic detail and images to illustrate it, and to her commitment to an enormous task.”
