Writer, editor and researcher – mostly about history and work

About me

Mark Crail is a writer, editor and researcher.

I write mostly on 19th and 20th century labour history – focusing largely on Chartism. Professionally, I used to write about employment issues – from legal compliance to good practice, HR analytics to pay data. But I packed in the whole working thing to focus on what I enjoy doing.

I am the author of Tracing Your Labour Movement Ancestors.

I have also written on Chartism, trade unions and employment issues for a wide range of family history magazines, including Who Do You Think You Are, Your Family Tree and Ancestors.

I am a member of the Society for the Study of Labour History executive committee. As part of this role, I edit the society’s website, and manage its social media accounts on Facebook and Twitter.
