Forces War Records & Military Genealogy

Have you ever wondered how Forces War Records transcribes its records? We've put together a short video to show you exactly what steps we go through to take a record from it's original source, on to the website, and in to your home.

This is the first in a series of videos and we have plenty more to come, so keep your eyes peeled!

Hitting a brick wall?  Try our Researcher Service

If you've reached a dead end when looking for your military ancestors, don't despair!  Just because you haven't found it online doesn't mean it's not there, there are many records at the National Archives which have not yet been made available online.  That's where we can help...

Simply tell our researchers want you want to know, and if they think it is feasible, one of them will go to the National Archives on your behalf and dig out everything they can regarding your ancestor's service, and everything they find will be sent to you digitally via Forces War Records.

Naturally, every case is different, but a search could bring up any of the following, and more:

  • Full service record
  • Medal cards
  • Pension Records
  • Dates of promotion
  • Prisoner of war information
  • Information regarding injuries
  • Transfers between regiments

One moment...
