I did a similar trip to you earlier this year, so I can share my recent, personal experiences.
Pre-ordering is great.? The ordered items will be in a cubbyhole waiting for you.
Laptops are fine and there are plenty of power outlets at the desks.
Take a digital camera.? While flash photography is not allowed, they have camera stands and boards near the windows where you can set up your camera and place the documents to take pictures of them.
I visited graves in Leeds.? My family members were not wealthy either and their stones appeared to be made out of a clay like material instead of the more expensive granite.? I found every grave I was looking for except my great grandmother, whose stone I suspect was gone, and some children who probably never had stones.? The stones were in remarkably good shape given the time elapsed and climate.
Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
