We’re here for you


We are open and shipping orders

Our customers can still place orders with Crecy by e-mail, via our website or by phone - our warehouse and dispatch department remains open and we are shipping books every day with our usual carriers and shipping partners.


How we’re working

We’ve implemented social distancing and hygiene measures in our warehouse and our staff are using appropriate protective equipment. Most of our editorial and administrative staff are working from home; we are continuing to prepare new books for publication and commissioning new titles.


2020 publication schedule

We have continued to receive new books in the warehouse over the last few days; however, there will be some changes to our future 2020 publication schedule. We’ll keep you informed through our e-mail newsletters, website updates and social media.


We’re here for you

We’re here if you want to check on the progress of an order, query a publication date or talk about your account. We’re working with our customers, suppliers and freelancers to help each other now, and to be ready when closed or constrained businesses re-open fully.



Crecy Publishing update 25/03/2020

In accordance with the current Government instructions and advice, the majority of Crecy staff are now homeworking. Our usual phone numbers and e-mail addresses are still being used, but do please bear with us if it takes longer than normal to respond to calls, messages and queries.

Our warehousing and dispatching functions remain operational and our carriers report that they are maintaining a near-normal service. In accordance with current good practice we have reduced the number of staff working in the same parts of the building to enable social distancing so, whilst we will endeavour to maintain same-day dispatch for the majority of sales orders, again do please bear with us if your orders take a day or two longer to arrive.

We are continuing to roll-out our 2020 publishing list and we have a number of new and exciting books arriving into the warehouse over the next few weeks. Please check back here for our latest news, or follow us on soclal media:

We look forward to the current situation passing, when we will do our bit to help get the heritage and bookseller sector back into business for all our customers, readers and authors.

Until then please protect those who are at risk; support our key workers; and stay safe.
