It is over One Hundred Years since the beginning of the First World War and there is a marked interest in obtaining information on family members who served in the Great War. We have access to a wide range of documents and information on World War 1 and have already successfully researched and and found details including service records, medal rolls, deaths and gravestones of fallen soldiers.
WW1 Service and Pension Records
The service and pension records of soldiers who served on the First World War are available and provide information such as medical history, casualty information, any disabilities as a result of injuries, conduct information and much more.
WW1 Medal Rolls Index
A soldier’s medal entitlement is recorded on a medal index card and these cards provide a single point of information such as the soldier’s name, regiment, rank, regiment number and more.
Soldiers who died in World War 1
In 1921 at the request of the War office, two lists of those who died during the Great War were produced. One volume solely for the officer casualties. However, it required eighty volumes to list all the ‘other ranks’ who gave their lives. The information that is available on the Medal Index Cards includes the soldier’s name, rank, regiment, death date and place as well as theatre of war.
