Researching World War One Ancestors
The current centenary commemorations have meant that many of us are now more aware than ever of our World War One ancestor – many never returning home. It is a time for reflection and recounting the service and sacrifice of that generation.
Our World War One Ancestor Research Service will research the life and service of your ancestor. Using a range of sources, many of which have only become available in recent years, we can build a picture of your ancestor’s pre-war life, their service and the outcome of the war.
The type of sources used include:-
- Birth, Marriage and Census records.
- Army Enlistment and Pension Records.
- Army War Diaries.
- Casualty Records.
- Commonwealth War Graves Records
- Newspaper Archives.
We discuss and agree the scope of the project scope with you in advance and issue a quotation detailing the cost of the research. The work will only begin when you have approved the scope and budget. When we have completed the research you will receive a fully sourced research report recording what we have found about your ancestor’s service in the Great War.
