A new resource for military genealogy
The Forces War Records military genealogy site is the only location where you can find military records of over 3.5 million British Armed Forces personnel exclusively cross-matched with over 4,000 regiments, bases and ships of the British Armed Forces going back to before 1350, making your military genealogy task much easier and more complete.
Their site is split up into different sections with name searches of forces records for those personnel who either died in battle or are still alive today, and their history search details information of just about every unit ever created in the British Armed Forces.
Their military genealogy records include the Second World War, the First World War, the Boer War, the Crimean War and more, so if you’re searching for an ancestor or family member who was in the Wars, then this is the first place you should look.
