Replacement of past awards
We cannot create a duplicate of an award document because no copies of the originals were kept. However, we can prepare a ‘Certificate of Past Award’, which will look very similar to the original. Click Here to see an example certificate. It is A4 size, signed by the current Secretary of the Society, and stamped with the impress of the Society.
You will need to provide the following information so that we can produce the certificate:
- The date of the committee meeting at which the award was approved.
- The name of the RHS President at the time
- The Chairman of the committee meeting
- The type of award given
- The name of the awardee
- The date of the incident
- The location of the incident
- A general description of the incident
- The RHS Case number
Our archives are no longer held by the Society, being gifted to the LMA in 2008. Therefore, if you do not have all of the above information this can be obtained by contacting the enquiries team at the LMA who will be able to assist (Please see above for how to contact the LMA). They will charge for this service.
Cost of Certificate
When you have all the above information this can then be sent to us, together with the fee for producing the certificate. The cost of the certificate including postage is £20 (UK & Europe) and £25 (Worldwide). Payment can be made by cheque or via bank transfer.
