Notes on WWI Casualty records:
The Casualty lists (First World War Reports - Missing, Wounded & Prisoner of War) are an excellent resource to use when researching a soldier who fought in the Great War 1914-18
These records are of enormous value to researchers, for in many cases the information that a man appeared in a list will not be available elsewhere. Researchers should note that the appearance of a name on the list was some time after the man became a casualty – usually around a month or so.
The collection is compiled from the ‘Daily War Office Casualty Lists’ and the ‘War Office Weekly Casualty List’ by His Majesty’s Stationery Office.
