Signalling Record Society - 50 Years

Membership Subscription Rates

Great !!. You've decided to join us.

If you join us on or before 31st August your period of membership runs from 1st January to 31st December of the calendar year in which you joined and you will be entitled to copies of all that year's issues of the Signalling Record. Where they have been published before you joined they will be sent as 'back issues'.

For members joining on or after the 1st September, membership runs from the date both your application and payment are accepted through to 31st December of the following calendar year. However, you will not be sent copies of the Signalling Record published prior to your joining.

There are two different rates of subscription dependent on whether you are resident in the UK or Elsewhere. Please click the approriate link.

Annual Subscription Rate UK

Our current annual subscription rate is £25 and this applies to members who provide us with a UK postal address to which we can send your initial documentation and your copies of the Signalling Record. Our definition of what comprises a UK address for this purpose is that published from time to time by Royal Mail.

If you have a UK sterling Bank Account

You can either send us a cheque in payment or, if it is more convenient or you don't have a cheque book, pay electronically. If you have on-line access to your bank account and can send electronic payments then your bank is a party to the electronic payments system often referred to as BACS. Any charges you incur for issuing cheques or electronic payments from your account are entirely dependent on the account arrangements you have with your bank. Click the button link below to start by filling in the application form.

If you don't have a suitable Bank Account

We also accept payment via PayPal. A PayPal account is convenient but not essential as PayPal can process credit and debit cards without requiring you to set up an account with them. Click the button link below to start by filling in the application form.

Annual Subscription Rate International

Our current subscription rate for members who require their documentation and Signalling Record sent outside the UK postal area defined by Royal Mail regardless of where that is in the world is £30.

If you fall into this category then PayPal is your only practicable option although you could ask you bank for a suitable sterling cheque. The latter option is likely to be cumbersome and expensive! Our subscription rate is in GBP (pounds Sterling) and PayPal will automatically translate this into your local currency based on the address associated with your PayPal account. Be aware that the conversion rate may fluctuate.

How Long Before I Hear From You?

We will process your application as quickly as possible, usually within two weeks but, as our officers are all unpaid volunteers and sometimes take holidays, response times may sometimes seem a little longer than you might expect.

Data Privacy Notice : Membership Records

This notice is applicable to all past, present and future members of the Signalling Record Society.

The Society respects your right to privacy. The personal information you provide is held on computer in the SRS Membership Database and is used to record and verify your membership of the Society, to enable us to mail you the copies of The Signalling Record to which you’re entitled, to contact you by post (and/or by email should you agree to it) on any Society matter, and to grant you access to any facilities and entitlements available only to members of the Society.

The printers of The Signalling Record carry out mailings of the journal on our behalf. We supply your name, address and membership number to them for that purpose. This aside, the Society does not share any of your personal information with any third party unless obliged to under UK law. The Society will not use your personal data for any purpose other than those set out in this notice.

At the same the Society is keen to encourage the exchange of information between members. When you first join the Society we will, if you agree to it, publish your name, address and any interests you outline, in The Signalling Record, and also include those details in a Membership Directory, which may be made available to members from time to time in either hard-copy or electronic (PDF) format. This can put you in touch with other members who share your interest.

It is your responsibility to notify us of any changes to the personal information you have provided so that we may keep our records up to date.
