Did your ancestors work at No 1 Royal Crescent in Bath?
No 1 Royal Crescent, one of the UK’s finest Georgian townhouse museums, is calling on Bath locals to re-visit their heritage to find out if any of their ancestors worked at the historic house. In June the main house will re-open after being refurbished and reunited with its original 18th-century servants’ wing, bringing the lives of both the masters and servants to life
The project, known as The Whole Story, is keen to identify and speak with families of anyone that may have worked in the house.
Bath Preservation Trust is calling for family members to get in touch with any information they have that may shed further light on the project which, once complete, will be one of the best examples of Georgian living in the UK.
Tom Boden, Head of Museums, said: “We are asking anyone whose family had a connection with the house or servants’ wing to come forward and share it with us and be part of this magnificent story of research and revival.”

The refurbishment will double the number of rooms open to the public and create a brand new extended historic house museum.
There will also be a gallery housing temporary exhibitions, a learning centre, archive collection and Georgian shop.
The £5 million restoration project is supported by the Brownsword Foundation and the Heritage Lottery Fund but the Bath Preservation Trust still needs to raise an extra £500,000 to fund the project.
