World War One Research

Facts uncovered and mysteries solved

What Can I Do?

I can provide copies of surviving Service records, both for Officers and Other Ranks, along with Medal entitlement details and the Regiment and the  Battalion a man served with, if these records are identifiable to a specific man.

If a man was awarded a Gallantry medal, I can also supply further details of that.

To enhance these personal records, I can also provide copies of War Diaries, in the case of the Army or Operation Records Books in the case of the RAF.  Both would provide a day-by- day account of where the man’s Battalion or Squadron was serving and what they were involved in, which will really give a picture of what your ancestor experienced.

I can also investigate whether a man was a Prisoner of War and supply copies of those records.

As part of any of this research, I am also able to search a variety of contemporary local newspapers for further information on a  man and his service.

I can also research Military Nurses.

All of the above research can be carried out on an individual man, or, for a number of men, for example researching all men on a War Memorial.

Please contact me if you would like me to research any of the above.



Ann Swabey’s assistance in conducting the research for my website was invaluable. She was able to access material quickly and efficiently saving me considerable time and money. I highly recommend her to anyone conducting research into the past.
