British Red Cross & Order of St John Enquiry List of 1917

Search this collection

After the war started in August 1914, The British Red Cross combined with the Order of St. John to form a ‘Joint War committee’. The committee pooled resources and campaigned and worked together under the symbol of the red cross. Centres for recording those who went missing or were wounded in the conflict were set up near every front line and used hospital and aid stations records to compile these. Very few of these full listings have survived and the only ones which are available one for 1915 and this edition.

Records in this collection are likely to include the following:

  • Name
  • Initial
  • regimental number
  • regiment
  • battalion
  • Division
  • Date of being reported missing
  • rank

Please be aware that due to the way we collate, and cross reference our databases, some records will contain more information than that listed above.
