Meet the Bond Lane Research Team

Cynthia Jennings


Administration & PR

Cynthia is energetic and is continually active in the office. Chasing us for information, Cynthia continually scours the databases for the relevant information.

She is also responsible for keeping our current data up to date. Cynthia is our office powerhouse, heading up our most of our communications.

Outside of the office, Cynthia loves spending time with her seven grandchildren. She embraces the latest technology and social media advances, especially Facebook. A real bonus when communicating with the younger generation!

Another favourite pastime is cooking, she loves baking cakes for all the family and the Bond Lane team of course!



Research & Client Liaison

Lucy joined Bond Lane Research in June 2014 and loves working with the team! Completing a Level 3 Diploma in Law with the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives at Coleg Gwent Newport. Lucy discovered her flair for the Law of Wills and Probate.

During her pregnancy and maternity leave, Lucy saw Phil working hard to reunite distant relatives on BBC’s Heir Hunters. Since then it has been her dream job.

In her spare time Lucy does some modelling, singing and dancing. She loves baking celebration cakes for her friends and family. All this plus a love of all things vintage.

Phil Jennings


Part Time- Senior Genealogist

Phil is engaged part time and when he’s not helping us solve cases in Southern Africa, he spends quality time with his family, spoiling his grandchildren with sweets.

Phil has a passion for history and needs to keep his mind busy. This results in Phil usually solving mysteries of one sort or another.’

With an interest in discovering the past, Phil loves to visit castles and other historical sites. Away from work he enjoys going on holiday cruising to far off places with his wife, Cynthia. A keen supporter of the Springboks, but he assures us: “That’s never the case when they play England or Wales!”
