If you are interested in genealogical research and are looking for the names of old members of the Company, the Tallow Chandlers are part of the ROLLCO (Records of London’s Livery Companies Online) partnership. Following extensive work by members of the Company to create a database of all deceased members, you can search for and view details of Company members before 1900 at www.londonroll.org.
This search engine is also useful if you are interested in researching a specific surname, or Livery Company members more generally. The results will show you which company a person was associated with, their level of membership and the date they were enrolled, as well as their occupation and location if the information is available. You can refine your search by company, name, occupation, place of residence and date.
ROLLCO is a not-for-profit project and access is free to all.
