British army military records research UK
Some examples of how we can help provide a fuller picture of an Ancestors or close relative's service history through our military records search service. 



We can search surviving Muster Rolls for a man's Regiment if he served in the British Army between around 1730 and 1898, amongst the National Archives military records. Muster Rolls give a quarter by quarter account of where a man was serving and when, include disciplinary and medical matters, details of promotion and demotion, dates of  enlistment and discharge, and can provide information on a man's birthplace.


They are a highly useful source for providing details of a man's service and act as a very informative addition to a soldier's service records.


World War One

We can, in most cases, establish which Regiment and Battalion a man served with in the British Army in WW1. 

We can provide copies of War Diaries for the Battalion a man served with. 

War Diaries provide a day by day account of where the Battalion was serving and what they were involved in and really give a picture of what your Ancestor experienced.


World War Two
If you have details of a man's Regiment and Battalion from his British Army service records we can provide copies of War Diaries to provide a day to day account of what he would have been involved in. 

We can also supply records of a Royal Air Force Squadrons activities during the Second World War.
