For 200 years Burke’s has been the most prestigious name in heritage publishing. Our famous Peerage and Landed Gentry titles have long been the first port of call for those seeking information on British aristocracy, and now they have been opened up to a whole new readership. Burke’s continue to deal with people of distinction, but times have changed and modern Britain is a meritocracy. Movers and shakers of today owe their positions to a great deal more than hereditary circumstance, and Burke’s recognise and celebrate this fact in this new publication.
Volumes III, The Principality of Wales and IV, The North West, published together in a single clothbound volume, are a celebration of successful men and women from all walks of life. Detailed listings of more than 5,000 people are included: prominent public figures, decision-makers, leading professionals, captains of industry, academics, celebrities, sports stars and many more. This publication also retains its historic role as the chronicle of aristocracy, with genealogies of our noble families going back hundreds of years.
