WWI Medal Index Cards contain details of soldiers' medal awards, full name, rank, regimental number and theatre of war first served.
WWI Medal Rolls give further detail of particular Battalions served and date of enlistment (from here it is possible to chart your relative's troop movements (we can advise on how to do this).
Commonwealth War Graves provides grave, burial & memorial references. History Hunters also provide a unique insight into battlion/regimental movements/battles etc. and a full open source check, sometimes with civilian information such as the census records of 1911, life after the war etc.
Full Service Record searches are not always successful, as many WWI records were destroyed during the WWII Blitz. These records often have places of birth filled in by the soldier, appearance details, including birth marks, scars, tattoos and all (!), signatures of soldier and Commanding Officer, lists of troop postings, movements and any wounds suffered.
In order for us to try and research your relative, we require as many details of his military career that you can give, where possible regiment, regimental number, full name and date of birth.
Research packages range from £45-95 depending on the amount of information that can be compiled and amount of time spent. Please contact us and we will assess initially and give you an idea of what might be possible.
