In recent years the Rayment Society has been facing increasing financial losses due to inflation.   Despite cutting back on peripheral research from the year 2021 onward and severely reducing the variant surname research from last year together with closing the separate www.rayment.org website this year, the Society is in fact still nowhere near breaking even.   Consequently, if the Society is to survive, it has now become necessary to increase both the annual membership fee to £9.00 and the joining fee for new members to £15.00 from today.

Whilst the committee appreciates that this is a substantial increase in fees, members are respectfully requested to bear in mind that this is in fact the very first increase since the Society was founded thirty-three years ago and that for the last seven years the increasing losses have been borne by various members of the committee!
