Default Valve Testing

Hi all.
I have just joined, and I am hoping that someone can help me. I have a large quantity of valves which I need testing.
They date from the fifties and sixties, some from the forties and a few pre war ones. I live in the Dudley area of the West Midlands.
Is there anyone in this vicinity with a tester who could help me out.
I know virtually nothing about electronics so I am at your mercy! Thanks!

I have also replied by PM a while ago, but heard nothing - do you still want these valves testing?

Cobmauler originally PM'd me direct, asking if I could test a large quantity of valves. I am reasonably local to him, so I quoted an appropriate fee, but I haven't heard anything... I wondered whether these valves needed to be tested prior to being offered on an auction site?

I've had no response either, you're probably right.
